A recent arrival noted outside on 6th Oct was EC-345/"U4" the next aircraft for the UAE
Still on the ramp was Singa 762 (actually leased back to Airbus for trials) & an unidentified RAAF in "100 years" marks

First test flight after conversion for the first Spanish MRTT from Getafe Airbase and Airbus factory (LEGT). Note it still wears partial IB livery as it was EC-MJA when working for IB.
