This week, the Aviation Podcast brings you an exceptional interview with one of the crews of the A400M Tactical Display: Commander Nicolas "Fish", Captain Jean-Baptiste "Whisky" and Warrant Officer Romain (loadmaster).
As the A400M prepares to celebrate its tenth year of operations with the French Air Force, all three describe their roles within the framework of the Tactical Display, but also outside it, during tactical missions, interoperability exercises or population support missions, in which the A400M's multi-role capabilities lead them to participate.
From explanations to anecdotes, they confide and detail their attachment to a modern, fast, highly maneuverable and mature aircraft - even if it is still awaiting further developments - which has made itself indispensable.
