At one more month to the first experimental flight of the new Airbus A350XWB, on May 14 in Toulouse made its first appearance the first MSN01, fresh painting in the final livery Airbus.
The first flight test is scheduled in the middle of june, in full respect of the planning. Hard and timely blow to American rival, who sees right now stuck to ground its Dreamliner, jewel-peak and direct antagonist of the new born.
The order in these days of 36 new specimens A350XWB by British-Airways, is a first consequence.
It promises to be a tough fight over the next few years between the two aviation giants.
