New German Air Force A350 Operates Epic Round The World Flight

The plane that will eventually shuttle Germany’s chancellor around the world operated a pretty remarkable journey this weekend, though I’m not sure I totally get why…

In 2019, Germany’s government purchased three Airbus A350-900s, which will eventually act as Germany’s “Air Force One,” and carry top officials around the world. One A350 is being delivered in 2020, while the other two will be delivered in 2022.

These were the first-ever orders for the ACJ350, with the “ACJ” standing for “Airbus Corporate Jet.” In other words, this is the private jet version of the popular A350.
