First metal cut for Beluga XL

Deharde milled first frame for giant cargo aircraft

Kick off for the production of Beluga XL: on June 15th, 2016, the first frame for the cargo airplane Beluga XL was milled on our state-of-the-art Unisign mill center. Thanks to great cooperation of Deharde’s different divisions, also the first 4 skins have already been manufactured.
Deharde is in charge of design and build of aircraft fuselage sections for the Airbus Beluga XL. We are very proud of having reached another milestone towards our target: transport by sea of the fuselage sections to Toulouse from March 2017 on. In Toulouse the new aircraft will be finally assembled and take off for its maiden flight in 2018.
