Airbus Military said on Thursday it had successfully run all of its A400M military transporter plane's engines for the first time, paving the wayfor its first maiden flight next month. "This is the first time we completely powered up the aircraft using the engine power and the first time that the aircraft has been operated completely autonomously" Fernando Alonso, head of flight operations, said in a statement.
