Three Airbus Military A330 MRTTs fly in formation

In this photo taken over Spain recently, three Airbus Military A330 MRTT multi role tanker transports destined for different customers are shown in formation. The lead aircraft, furthest from the camera will join the UK Royal Air Force where it will be known as Voyager as part of the Future Strategic Transport Aircraft (FSTA) programme; the middle aircraft is the original development example which will eventually enter service with the Royal Australian Air Force; and the aircraft nearest the camera is the second for the United Arab Emirates air force.
