One year ago, the first forward fuselage arrived at the FAL-Toulouse. The 3rd is expected in few days

Airbus received the first forward fuselage from the Saint-Nazaire facility at the FAL in Toulouse on 23/Dec/2011, exactly one year ago.

It was installed in the MSN5000 static test specimen. Since then, another forward fuselage was received and joint in the MSN001.

And in few days (or weeks), the 3rd forward fuselage will arrive at the FAL to start the final assembly of the MSN003, second flyable aircraft.

The 21m cockpit and forward cabin will be transported to Toulouse by Airbus A300-600ST freighter Beluga.
