A340-500's First Flight

Mon Jan 21, 2002 8:34 am

Hi all, according to a340.net the A340-500 will make its first flight on Feb. 5th, which is only a week away! This plane will be the longest range plane so far yet. How many people will be there to watch the flight? Unfortunately I won't be there.

Don't planes usually first have the roll-out before they fly for the first time???
Did I miss anything?

Yes you are right it is in two weeks. My new calender is hard to read, it has the days divided into two lines so it looked like one week.
