HAWARDEN AIRPORT, WALES – February 15, 2019. The Airbus Beluga XL doing a flypast with a wing wave before touching down for the first time at Hawarden Aerodrome Broughton Factory in the UK, for the ground tests.
A large Airbus factory, which produces aircraft wings, is located at the airport. The factory is known as the Broughton factory, named after the nearest village.

The Airbus Beluga XL (Airbus A330-743L) is a large transport aircraft due to enter into service in 2019. It is based on the A330 airliner, to be the successor to the Airbus Beluga. The XL has an extension on the fuselage top like the Beluga. It is being designed, built and will be operated by Airbus to move oversized aircraft components. The aircraft made its first flight on 19 July 2018.
