First A350 XWB Painting Completed in Toulouse

A350 XWBThe painting of the first Airbus A350 XWB “MSN001” was fully completed on May 13 as it emerged in its Airbus livery out from the paintshop in Toulouse.
The manufacturer says the painting was achieved in less than seven days and follows the recent completion of MSN001’s flight-test-instrumentation (FTI) verification.  Last month the aircraft underwent its engines installation, and passed a subsequent intensive phase of ground vibration tests.  MSN001 will soon start the final tests before its maiden flight this summer.  (Photo: Airbus)

  1. It looks great. It seems that Airbus is in a great hurry, there will not be the usual roll-out ceremony, the plane goes directly to flight test. Are they aiming for a surprise first flight when the Paris show starts ?
