Airbus A400M Atlas
Eyes were craned skyward in Gloucestershire as an Airbus A400M Atlas flew over Cheltenham and Gloucester on Thursday.

The aircraft was conducting a training exercise practicing landing at Gloucestershire Airport in Staverton.

And many people took videos and still images of the plane, including David Willis who took the picture below from Benhall Park in Cheltenham.

The aircraft has a much larger capacity compared with older models the cargo capacity has doubled. The Aircraft can do electrical surveillance and aerial refuelling as well as transport.

The aircraft's intended use is for short soft landing strips and for long-range flight for transporting cargo.
