New Airbus jet made to look just like a beluga whale


Take a look at one of the happiest jets in the skies.

If you think this new Airbus jet looks like a friendly beluga whale… You’re right.

It’s even named the Airbus Beluga XL.

It’s been one of the aviation world’s most anticipated new planes.

The jet completed a key round of testing and is on track to enter into service later this year.

Passengers won’t be able to fly on this smiling plane, however.

This is a super-transporter cargo plane designed by Airbus to fly its aircraft components between European production sites – and its final assembly lines around the world.
