Airbus A350 XWB Documentary.

“The Airbus A350 XWB is a family of long-range, twin-engine wide-body jet airliners developed by European aircraft manufacturer Airbus. The A350 is the first Airbus aircraft with both fuselage and wing structures made primarily of carbon-fibre-reinforced polymer.[7] Its variants seat 280 to 366 passengers in typical three-class seating layouts.[8] The A350 is positioned to succeed the A340, and compete with the Boeing 787 and 777.

The A350 was originally conceived in 2004, pairing the A330‘s fuselage with new aerodynamics features and engines. In 2006, Airbus redesigned the aircraft in response to criticism from several major prospective customers and renamed it the A350 XWB (extra wide body). Development costs are estimated at €11 billion (US$15 billion or £9.5 billion).[9] As of December 2016, Airbus had received 818 orders for A350s from 43 customers worldwide.[5] The prototype A350 first flew on 14 June 2013 from Toulouse, France. Type certification from the European Aviation Safety Agency was received in September 2014 and certification from the Federal Aviation Administration two months later. On 15 January 2015, the A350 entered service with Qatar Airways, the type’s launch customer.”

Quote Of The Day.

“Thousands of volumes have been written about aviation, but we do not automatically have thousands of true and special friends in their authors. That rare writer who comes alive on a page does it by giving of himself, by writing of meanings, and not just of fact or of things that have happened to him. The writers of flight who have done this are usually found together in a special section on private bookshelves.”

— Richard Bach, ‘The Pleasure of Their Company,’ in Flying magazine, April 1968.

What Happens If Both Airplane Engines Fail?

“If a plane is flying through the air and both engines fail, what happens? Does the plane fall out of the sky? Does it glide like a big glider? Or does it turn into a bird and fly away?”
