Participating in the Airbus 50th anniversary flight were the A220, A319neo, A330neo, A350, A380 and BelugaXL along with the Patrouille de France.

Airbus is 50 years and celebrated this remarkable achievement with a formation flight out of Toulouse.

Participating in the flight were the A220, A319neo, A330neo, A350, A380 and BelugaXL along with the Patrouille de France.

Unfortunately a low-level fly-by at Toulouse was impossible due to the weather.

The company was born 50 years ago today when the French Minister of Transport, Jean Chamant and the German Minister of Economic Affairs, Karl Schiller, signed an agreement at the 1969 Paris Air Show for the joint-development of the A300 aircraft, a first European twin-aisle twin-engine jet for medium-haul air travel.

Guillaume Faury, CEO of Airbus said: “Our story is one of ambition and progress, and has been a showcase of European integration. Over five decades, we have brought together civil and defence aviation businesses from throughout the continent. For 50 years, we have pioneered many firsts through our passion and innovation, transforming the industry and helping to move society forward. Airbus is a story of incredible men and women, a story of great achievements in the past and, above all, in the future.”
