The Turkish air force has joined other countries, including the UK, in grounding its fleet of two Airbus A400M aircraft following the crash in Seville at the weekend.

The aircraft which crashed was a new plane set to be handed over to Turkey as part of a deal to purchase ten of the new aircraft destined to replace the aging Hercules transport aircraft.

The destroyed aircraft, which crashed on a test flight with a Spanish crew on board, was due to be delivered to Turkey next month, according to manufacturer Airbus.
