Photos: All five Airbus A350-900XWB’s in formation

On the eve of receiving type certification of the new A350-900XWB from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), European airframer Airbus performed a special formation flight of all the five A350 test aircraft that were used in the flight test process.

The aircraft which bear registrations F-WXWB (Carbon Livery), F-WWCF, F-WZGG, F-WZNW (Qatar Livery) (See pictures from inside this aircraft) and F-WWYB (Carbon Lite Livery) are all powered by Rolls-Royce Trent XWB engines which will be the exclusive powerplant used on all A350’s. 

The aircraft took off and performed the flypast over Toulouse Blagnac Airport where Airbus is headquartered.
