Per the above link. an 18 foot composite section of the A350XWB is shown for testing. Was this for a drop test or for internal evaluation? What was learned from the mockup that can be shared?

That is the second test barrel that was rolled out in August last year, the first test barrel was rolled out around mid 2008.

Quote:
"The tests performed on this barrel will mainly focus on the fatigue and damage tolerance of composite structures, the barrel being part of the certification of the aircraft," says Airbus.
