So we have just heard that Airbus want to put CFRP panels into the wings of the A350, can someone enlighten me as to how CFRP they want to use ?

I know its used a lot in Mil aircraft so speed aint a problem but would the weight of a fully loaded A3510 cause any problems ?

I mean the wing wont be all CFRP ??

Wing mainly - fuse - AL frames and carbon shells (4 making up each tube) outside of them - tubes up to 16m long.

Well they just finished the largest CRFP wing sections for the A400M and they are pretty damn big.

They were talking about a 17% reduction with a comparable T7 - there's loads of detail in the press-briefing thread
