Photos – First Airbus A350 XWB Rolls Out of Paint Hangar

Today the first completed Airbus A350 XWB rolled out of paint hangar in Toulouse, France. This latest milestone shows that MSN001 is progressing well on its route to first flight this summer.

The aircraft 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.
