TEAM PLAYER: Alabama-made Airbus A321 to make Iron Bowl flyover

MOBILE, Alabama — Airbus said today that an Alabama-built A321 will perform a flyover at Saturday’s Iron Bowl match-up in Tuscaloosa.

The aircraft, destined for delivery to Delta Air Lines next month, is scheduled to fly over Bryant-Denny Stadium following the National Anthem and prior to kick-off, which is currently scheduled for 2:30 p.m. Saturday.

The A321 made its maiden flight from Mobile Aeroplex, the home of Airbus’ $600 million manufacturing facility, on Nov. 14. It’s the 15th passenger jet assembled at the Alabama factory.

Mobile is also home to other Airbus facilities, including an engineering center that employs more than 220 staffers.
