Final A350 Test Aircraft Nears Completion

The fifth and final A350 flight test aircraft (MSN5) is now undergoing the fuselage joining process at Airbus’ final assembly line (FAL) in Toulouse, France. This follows the recent arrival of the three fuselage sections at the FAL. The aircraft, which is set to fly for the first time in spring 2014, is the second of the A350 flight test aircraft that will feature a passenger cabin and will primarily be used to perform cabin-related flight tests. The first delivery of the A350 will be to Qatar Airways in the second half of 2014.
