On 29th May 2019, Airbus celebrated its 50th anniversary. To mark the occasion, the company arranged a special formation flight.

The formation flight lasted around three and a half hours, with the aircraft taking off from Toulouse and doing several loops in front of the panorama of the Pyrenees Mountains before continuing out over the Mediterranean. At 1pm, all of the aircraft were back on the ground.

A flyover of Toulouse Airport was originally planned for 12pm, but unfortunately the local staff waited in vain as bad weather stopped play.
