The A350 really is beautiful & graceful, I love its slender line & its long wings .



Let's now wait for its first landing at around 2pm (local time).

This picture shows that Airbus is at first French technology.

The front fuselage and especially the cockpit, avionics and the engines are built by French companies....And are the most important parts of this plane A350 .

Furthermore since the beginning of the program Airbus 35 years ago,
AIRBUS was at first a French project, but France had no money enough, logical, because its smaller than USA, after Other European countries were associated to the project Airbus to have the financing, Like that Airbus became an European project. Europe brought the money and France brought the technology.
there are only 2 nations in europe which can build "alone" a plane, FRANCE and UNITED KINGDOM.
I do not understand why UK did not want to join to this AIRBUS project......because the binational cooperation FRANCE UK was a success with the CONCORDE.
________

DONT FORGET THAT the Concorde plane was a flop everywhere in the world after a scandalous campaign against this plane, a campaign from the american media and the american societies.
"" it pollutes, it makes too much noise, etc."

the campaign against the concorde in USA Totally inequitable and deceitful was only a protectionnist strategy.

A350's engine is supplied by Rolls-Royce, Trent XWB.
And I don't think the picture said anything about avionics.

Actually, Airbus came together because three airlines--Lufthansa in (then) West Germany, Air Inter in France, and British European Airways in the UK--wanted a plane that could fly longer intra-European routes but with much higher carrying capacity. The result was the original A300, but when Rolls-Royce ran into difficulties with the RB.211 engine for the Lockheed L-1011, the consortium decided to scale back the plane's size to accommodate the General Electric CF6-50 engine--the result was the A300B, the first production Airbus airliner.

Today, the first flight of the A350XWB-900 is the latest evolution of that widebody twin-jet layout pioneered by the original A300B--a plane can fly most of the world's transoceanic routes but with 18-20% lower fuel consumption than the Boeing 777-200ER of similar size and carrying capacity.

It should be noted that Toulouse is home to Airbus because that city's aeronautical industry dates from almost the earliest days of aviation. I believe the Airbus final assembly line used the facilities belonging to Sud Aviation that built the famous Caravelle airliner.

The engines are made by a French company?! The boys from Rolls-Roys might disagree with you.
The avionics are supplied by several companies from different countries.

And there isn´t a country in Europe which could build an airliner on its own. Therefore Airbus was founded.

This is incorrect: the A300 production line was purpose built for the A300, though it is situated literally right next to the Caravelle line. The former Caravelle line is today used for the assembly of the ATR42 and ATR72 turboprops. The Toulouse A320 assembly line uses the assembly hall originally built and used for Concorde.

First A350 XWB successfully completes first flight

Aircraft and its engines perform excellently

14 June 2013 Press Release

The first A350 XWB to fly has landed back at Toulouse-Blagnac Airport France at 14.05 hours local time after successfully completing its first flight that lasted four hours and five minutes (245 minutes).



The aircraft was flown by Peter Chandler, Airbus’ Chief Test Pilot, and Guy Magrin, Project Pilot for the A350 XWB. Accompanying them in the cockpit was Pascal Verneau, the A350 XWB Project Test Flight Engineer. Monitoring the progress of the flight profile were the three flight test engineers: Fernando Alonso, Head of Airbus Flight & Integration Test Centre; Patrick du Ché, Head of Development Flight Tests; and Emanuele Costanzo, lead Flight Test Engineer for the Trent XWB engine.

Airbus President and CEO Fabrice Bregier said: “I congratulate the whole A350 XWB development team for having completed the first flight preparation in a record time. I also wish to thank the first flight crew today for taking this aircraft where it wants to be – in the sky.” He added: “I would also like to extend my gratitude to all our teams in the design offices, at programme and manufacturing level, the ground crews as well as our colleagues in airlines and suppliers and many others who helped define this all-new aircraft. The A350 XWB which has flown today, integrating the latest available technologies, is now entering the final stage of its development. And it is ready. Ready to head towards certification and entry-into-service in the second half of next year.”

For its first flight, the A350 XWB – carrying the registration F-WXWB – took off at around 221 tonnes. During the flight, which took the aircraft around south western France, the crew explored the aircraft’s flight envelope. The aircraft was accompanied by a chase plane to observe and film the various manoeuvres. Its progress was monitored by experts on the ground in real-time via a direct telemetry link. This maiden flight marks the beginning of a rigorous test flight campaign involving five A350s, and around 2,500 flight hours. It will culminate in the aircraft’s certification followed by its entry into airline service in the second half of 2014 with first operator Qatar Airways.

The A350 XWB is the all-new mid-size long range product line comprising three versions and seating between 270 and 350 passengers in spacious three-class layouts. The new family will bring a step change in efficiency compared with existing aircraft in this size category, using 25 per cent less fuel and providing an equivalent reduction in CO2 emissions. To date the A350 XWB has already won 613 firm orders from 33 customers worldwide.

As alredy mentioned, avionics are supplied and developed by several companies. These include French company Thales, but also Rockwell Collins. The engines are British (RR).

And I'd argue that the structurally most important part of this plane are the wings. And those are made in the UK, as are the wings of all other Airbus aircraft.

Do all planes have that hatch at the top? What's it for anyway?

Also, I thought the first flights are pretty short?

There's still a chance we could see something besides the Rolls-Royce Trent XWB on the A350XWB.

One possibility: an Engine Alliance GP7000 variant, with an engine core that will allow this special GP7000 variant to generate between 76,000 to 86,000 lb. thrust for the A350XWB-800 and -900 models.

Is't horrible, as the B767 landing gear. I would have liked as the A330 with a tilted angle.
