Thought this was a cool video to share. It shows an Airbus A400M landing at a beach. I'm assuming this is for training in case of emergencies or disasters. In the video you can see the aircraft do touch and go before landing.




An airbus A400M from RAF Brize Norton making a rare visit to Pembrey sands to conduct natural surfaces operations. With the weather being wet prior to the aircraft arriving the pilot conducted some low approaches then some touch and go’s before the all clear to land the 76 tonne aircraft on the beach.

It's training for unimproved runways.

This looks way more fun though.
