PICTURES: Airbus A350 arrives at Singapore show

This story is sourced from

The newest arrival on the circuit, the Airbus A350-900, has made its debut at the Singapore air show, performing a validation routine ahead of the official opening of the exhibition on 11 February.

Flight-test aircraft MSN3 undertook a practice display lasting approximately 5min after arriving at the Changi show site at around 13.30 local.


The Rolls-Royce Trent XWB-powered twinjet (F-WZGG) is the second flying prototype and was most recently used for cold-weather testing in Iqaluit, Canada.


Although the A350 made a brief appearance at last year's Paris air show, performing a fly-past at the end of the week, Singapore marks its first proper show appearance.


It is also the first time that the all-composite widebody has lined up against Boeing's 787.
