The Ariane 6 launch complex has been under construction since 2017 and is foreseen to be completed before the end of 2019. The largest structure of the launch site consists of the mobile gantry – a large building weighing 8,200 tonnes that is able to move on rails – which will house Ariane 6 until shortly before launch. See below the latest drone footage taken of the site in Kourou, French Guiana (South America) taken at the end of May 2019.
