No, not yet!

That would make for eight different planes having their first flight in september. Not bad at all. Maybe fifty deliveries this year might be in reach after all.

...but only four deliveries. Airbus now need to deliver 25 aircraft in three months. That's half the year's deliveries in a quarter, or 8.3 deliveries a month.

It's not technically impossible, but it's not looking at all likely.

The output is currently 6 aircraft per month. If MSN 48 and 50 slipped into October than this month will see 6 + 2 = 8 deliveries.

A35K is the official ICAO code for the A350-1000. K standing for 1000 so it make sense.

I think it has the engines attached as it is on line at the flightline - and that does not happen without engines on the wings.

So you'll have to wait for Airbus to release some photos.


Here's the latest flight line photo with MSN 59 on it. As described above, it's difficult to see as the A350-1000 is parked on the other side.

So F-WMIL should have its first ground engine run soon with the Trent XWB-97 engines.
