Toulouse - Today, on January 4th, a photographer captured the first images of the Beluga XL, the successor of Beluga, while rolling out for the first time from the assembly hangar.

The new Beluga XL, the aircraft transportation carrier of Airbus, has made its first run near the Airbus hangars at Toulouse-Blagnac airport.

The moment seized by a photographer, Rhami Khanna, who posted his photos on his Flickr account and quickly spread through social media.

Until now we had only seen the computer graphics provided by Airbus when the manufacturer launched the program. The first flight of the Beluga XL will take place in 2018. The commissioning of the Beluga XL is scheduled for 2019.
