Airbus Military second A400M development aircraft Grizzly 2 has visited Kiruna in northern Sweden for four days of cold weather trials at the beginning of February.

The team experienced temperatures down to -21ºC and successfully achieved all the planned test points during a programme that focused on the powerplants.

The A400M was accompanied by an Airbus A340-300 transport aircraft carrying support equipment and the personnel team. These tests followed preliminary cold weather work in Hamburg last December and will be followed by further tests in more extreme temperatures at Kiruna and other locations this winter.
