Airbus Beluga Returns to the US after 15 years

DALLAS – Something big has landed at Orlando Sanford International Airport (SFB)—the Airbus BelugaST, one of the world’s largest transport aircraft.

The aircraft is scheduled to arrive at the Kennedy Space Center (KSC) early tomorrow morning to deliver an Airbus-built satellite that is part of a key forthcoming space mission.

This is a momentous event for Airbus as it is the first time the Beluga has returned to the US and the KSC in 15 years. In addition, as the Beluga arrives, another Airbus-built satellite will sit atop a rocket set to launch from KSC at midnight today.
