Airbus Defence and Space has completed certification testing of the A400 airlifter on a grass runway.

The tests used the development aircraft MSN2, and took place over a period of three weeks at the Écury-sur-Coole airfield to examine the aircraft’s behaviour on grass and soil runways.
 
Previous tests on a gravel surface were successfully completed earlier this year, with more tests on sand surfaces to take place next year.
