Picture: Future Brize


Airbus Military recently took the opportunity to drop into RAF Brize Norton in Oxfordshire.

July 23: While arriving for last weekend’s Royal International Air Tattoo at RAF Fairford in Gloucestershire, Airbus Military took the opportunity to drop into nearby RAF Brize Norton in Oxfordshire with the A400M for a photo opportunity with the RAF’s other heavylift assets, the C-17A Globemaster III and C-130J Hercules.

The three types are expected to form the backbone of the UK’s strategic transport requirements from the base in future years, also recent speculation is that the forthcoming Strategic Defence Review by the government may require the force to be restricted to two types.
