Two A300-600ST Airbus Belugas

Two A300-600ST Airbus Belugas


Toulouse, France (FR)
Similar to the American Super guppy.

Featuring the most voluminous cargo hold of any civil or military aircraft flying today, the Airbus Beluga offers a unique way to transport oversized air cargo.

The Beluga (also known as the A300-600ST Super Transporter) was developed to carry complete sections of Airbus aircraft from different production sites around Europe to the final assembly lines in Toulouse or Hamburg. Its main-deck cargo volume is greater than the C5 Galaxy, the An-124 or the C-17 airlifters.

The five-aircraft fleet of Belugas is operated by Airbus Transport International (ATI). In addition to serving the internal transportation needs of Airbus, ATI offers Belugas on a charter basis to third parties. ATI ensures a high level of customer satisfaction with loading, unloading, and delivery designed to be fast, safe, flexible, and reliable – as demonstrated by years of successful operations throughout the world.

Yet another Beluga can be seen in the West facing view.

Too bad we don't have full BEV coverage of the Airbus plant and the Toulouse airport.
