It launches 20th anniversary of OCCAR signature

Airbus has for the first time formally delivered two A-400M new generation airlifter airplanes to two different nations in one day. The company handed over the aircraft on 20 March (but the industry communicated it only today) to the European Organisation for Joint Armament Cooperation (OCCAR), in charge of the management of the A-400M Programme, representing Germany and France, at a ceremony in Seville, Spain. 

These latest deliveries were the 60th and 61st A-400Ms to be handed over and take the German and French fleets to 18 and 14 aircraft respectively. 

The photo shows the Airbus and OCCAR delivery teams, and French and German crews in front of the two planes following the official handover ceremony.
