The first aircraft to be dismantled and disassembled at Twente Airport by Aircraft End-of-Life Solutions was Airbus A340-313X HB-JMK of Swiss, which arrived on April 27, 2017. The company hopes to process up to 16 aircraft annually and is looking for a permanent base at Twente Airport.
Brake tests on Airbus A400M (EC-402), supervised by the NLR, took place from March 21 to 23, 2017. Carried out at the request of Airbus, the tests were performed in a 30mm (1.1in) water trough on the runway with different speeds up to 110kts (203km/h).
Cessna C550 Citation of the NLR conducted brake tests from September 13 to September 16, 2016, in a specially created water trough to examine and certify Possehl anti-skid layer for runway surfaces.
