    She's nice, I'm pretty sure the Airbus A350 will be even nicer............ :twisted:

    Amazing amounts of wing flex, nice take off and epically a nice landing.....

    What a stunning plane, The bus tour took me around the 1st production one - BEAutiful machine.
    It's about time they got the maiden flight done.
    When I was over in the Seattle plant back in June and they said it was due to take its maiden flight 2 weeks later......
