Airbus Military says that it has successfully tested loading two helicopters into one of its A400M Grizzly development aircraft, a key part of its testing program.

Using development aircraft Grizzly 4, an NH Industries NH90 and Eurocopter EC725 were successfully loaded in separate tests at Holzdorf air base in Germany and in Toulouse, France.

The load testing is a crucial part of the aircraft achieving initial operating capability, with the first A400Ms to be delivered by the end of the year.
