A350 XWB flight test aircraft MSN2 has rolled out of the paint shop from Airbus’s Toulouse, France facilities wearing a distinctive paint scheme to highlight the aircraft’s carbon fibre composite construction.

MSN2 will be the third A530 test aircraft to fly, and is due to join the flight test program “in coming weeks”, Airbus says. MSN2 is also the first of two A350s to feature a full passenger cabin interior.

Airbus says 53 per cent of the A350 by weight comprises carbon fibre.
