Does anyone have any more photos of this or perhaps a video?

Cheers

Please tell me that livery is temporary.

It is indeed a temporary livery, it is MSN4, the fourth prototype. Checkout the production thread of A350 part 15.

Welcome on board, wzafar; glad to have you with us!

I think the livery looks ok, given that it is just temporary. However, it is the winglets that attracted my attention! They don't seem to be curled winglets that they had on the first one, or am I dreaming? These seem to be like those on the 744, whereas those on the first A350s seemed to have quite a distinctive design.

The winglet is curved, just hard to tell from the angle of that photo.

I prefer the Carbon livery on MSN3 (?) but this one is still very nice.

Very nice looking livery. IMHO better on the A350 than the regular QR livery.

A good one of livery? Absolutely
A good fleet wide livery? Not one bit in my opinion, but then again liveries are very personal.

Not bad at all, though I'm not a great fan neither of the aircraft nor the airline. I must admit those colours are not that bad...

How could I mix up MSN2 and MSN3

So we still don't know whether the A350 will have the "raccoon eyes" as standard.

I for one will be very disappointed if the raccoon eyes are not standard (although each airline must be able to make their own choice if there is no technical obstacle)

Except the nose & Cockpit window, kinda reminds me of the 380. Functional yes, but not pretty (with these Cockpit Window style now being all the rage...) the CS Series or 787 look much better (talking nose/Cockpit window only here)!

As for QR, this is only a promotional colour scheme, simmilar to what they did with the 380 in half QF colours. QR should and will stick to their current livery (look at all the A380´s and 787´s currently getting the ´gray colours)
