Airbus bolts Trent XWB to flying testbed

Very much as the title of the post suggests: Airbus has mounted the first Rolls-Royce Trent XWB engine to its A380 flying testbed as it gears up to launch the flight test campaign. With its 118-inch diameter fan, it’s fair to describe the engine, which will power the A350, as “quite big really”.
