Airbus’ next-generation A350 XWB jetliner “tours” Mobile, Alabama during its first-ever U.S. visit

23 May 2014 News in brief

Airbus’ A350 XWB MSN2 developmental aircraft made a high-profile appearance today in the skies over the U.S. state of Alabama, where the company’s newest A320 Family final assembly line is being constructed and the Airbus Mobile Engineering Center is located – both situated at the Mobile Aeroplex at Brookley near the city of Mobile. The jetliner’s special Alabama appearance followed more than two weeks of extreme weather testing at Eglin Air Force Base’s McKinley Climatic Lab in Florida and included a flyover of the Airbus LPGA Classic women’s professional golf tournament in Mobile.
