The new Beluga Airbus looks just like a beluga whale.

It weighs 125 tonnes – that’s the same as over 83 real life beluga whales!

It’s designed to carry very heavy cargo over thousands of miles, and this week it made its first flight from France to the UK.

A crowd of more than 10,000 watched the plane take off for the first time near the company’s headquarters in Toulouse, France.

Airbus’s oddly shaped jet is the first of five that Airbus expects to build by 2023.
