    Row after 'totally unacceptable' engine problems keep A400M fleet on the ground

    A row erupted at a recent Nato conference over the RAF's new 2.6billion transporter planes as it has emerged engine problems mean just two of 20-strong fleet are able to fly at any one time.

    The delay in bringing into service the new A400M plane for the RAF and other partner nations led to a major disagreement between Airbus, the aircraft manufacturer, and Nato Ministers.

    Does it matter?

    Those that are flying can do aeros so the paying public will be happy.
    It's not the man in the fight - it's the fight in the man.

      I'm not entirely sure that its the engines.... from what I heard the principle problems are sitting between A4 sheets in an untouched in-tray.

          If you look at the list of ADs against the A400:- the gearbox and engine appear to have most problems...and the authorities appear to have needed a mandate to make sure they got fixed.
          ...looked alright to me!
