EADS CASA president admits A400 has problems in 'critical areas'

EADS CASA President Francisco Fernandez (pictured) admits openly that his A400 military transport plane still suffers from about a dozen "difficulties" in "areas that present a critical risk."

However, he assures the public that the company is aware of the problems and is working on them.

Speaking at a ceremony marking the delivery of the first A400M vertical stabilizer at the San Pablo, Fernandez downplays the problems, saying that they "were not unknown" and would be fixed.
