Abdurrahman Şeref Can, the Head of the Fixed-Wing Platforms Department from the Presidency of Defence Industries, attended an interview organised by SAVTEK. He said that the Turkish Air Force would receive its last A400M aircraft next year.



 The Turkish Air force was waiting for this aircraft since 2015. The aircraft with serial number MSN023 was on its first pre-delivery maiden flight and crashed at La Rinconada, Spain. Turkish Air Force would receive this aircraft by June 2015.

According to the original plan, Turkey would have completed the entire fleet by June 2019.
