Video: First Airbus A350XWB rolls out of the paint hangar

The first A350 XWB emerged from the paint shop at the Toulouse, France plant with its Airbus livery on 13 May 2013, marking a new milestone toward this jetliner’s maiden flight in the summer. Rumours abound that Airbus is trying to make the first before the Paris air show.

All that aside, what do you think of how the plane looks? The nose is a sharp departure from the bulbous noses its other Airbus siblings share.
