The Airbus Military A400M performs water ingestion tests

Airbus Military has successfully completed testing to demonstrate the new-generation A400M airlifter's ability to operate on wet runways and taxiways without ingesting water into the engines. During these tests at Istres, France, the aircraft travelled through troughs containing 2-6 cm of water at speeds of up to 90kt in take-off and landing configurations, including operations with reverse thrust.
