A350 gets a new nose...and wing.
Bookmark and Share

Flightglobal.com reported this morning that new renderings of the Airbus A350 illustrate the new look of the nose with 6 windows similar to that of the A380.

A closer look at the images also reveals several major changes to the wing design. The new wings show the winglets with an increased upward bend. In addition, the almost bare wing that marked the original XWB design now has three large flap fairings. The wing dimensions have appeared to change as well. The new wing looks as though it features slightly less sweep.

Judge for yourself:
