Using a new A380 to test engines? WOW!

Would this engine fit under a A340-600?

Since Airbus have already been using this A380 as a test plane for 6,5 years by now it's only logical that they use it for this new A350 engine. And I'm sure Airbus will also be very interested to see how the Trent XWB performs under a A380 wing with the development of the A380-900 in mind.

Is the XWB engine is slightly smaller than the a380 engine?

It's called perspective (things further away look smaller)...



A TXWB is slight larger in diameter than a T900.

True. And besides perspective also the darker colored nacelle makes the Trent-XWB look smaller then the white painted nacelle on the Trent-900.

That will for sure also be a factor, even though the A380-900 is most likely still quite some years away.

Brain compensates for perspective. If it didn't people standing a few feet from you would look like midgets and square tables would look like distorted polygons.

Airbus announced a up to 6 months delay for the A350 program

Airbus A350 final assembly schedule slips to 2012

Airbus has slipped the development schedule of the A350-900, with entry into service set for the first half of 2014 and the beginning of final assembly put back to early 2012.

The airframer had been hoping to start final assembly of the twinjet by the end of 2011 but had increasingly indicated that technological issues, and a desire to avoid immature sections being delivered too quickly, could force a slip.

Not really surprising after all the 787 delays with the same kind of new technologies used. Lets see if Airbus can keep it all a bit more under control then Boeing did.

True, it's not easy to develop brandnew aircraft , is it?

I find the Airbus task being more challenging than what Boeing done for the 787 , if we look at the diversity of the 350 they all look like different planes 350 -1000 is a remarkable plane I would like to see one

Pretty much expected, but I think they can keep to that new date considering how advanced the production phase of the first plane is.

Boeing believes that a future 787-10 or a modernized 777 could be on the market when the A350-1000 is airborne, given the timeframe to service entry. Customers seems not to be convinced about the A350-1000 performance (few orders)...so a new version of the 777 could have an edge....

Airbus announces 200 engineering jobs at Filton

Aircraft manufacturer Airbus has announced 200 new jobs at its base in Filton, near Bristol. The company says the new engineering jobs are due to demand for its A350 passenger plane and government investment in the plant.

The lightweight composite aircraft was due to come into service in 2013 but will now enter service in the first half of 2014.

Airbus has more than 550 orders for the A350 - which can carry 340 passengers.

'Huge orders'

Business Secretary Vince Cable was visiting Airbus on Thursday morning. The firm has received a conditional offer of funding from the government's £1.4bn Regional Growth Fund.

Announcing the jobs, Neil Scott, head of engineering at Airbus Filton, said the company "probably" made the best wings in the world so it needed the best engineers. "They'll work on the next generation of the A350, on further refining the world's latest passenger plane - the A380 - and on creating the aircraft of the future, the A320neo," Mr Scott said.

BBC West's business correspondent Dave Harvey said: "These are skilled engineering jobs, and so will be especially welcome in Filton, after the recent job losses announced by BAE systems and the Ministry of Defence.

"They reflect the fact that while military spending is being cut, civilian aerospace is doing well at the moment, with huge orders from India, China and the Middle East." In September, defence giant BAE Systems said it was cutting almost 3,000 jobs, including 206 in Bristol and Somerset.
