Airbus A350-941 F-WZGG making a VERY short field landing, arriving at Cotswold Airport (EGBP) April 2014 – The first landing of an A350 in the United Kingdom.
Using a specially developed camera mount fixed to a runway light, this ‘up-close and personal’ perspective gives a very different view to the short field landing of the new Airbus A350 at Cotswold Airport (Kemble), when it arrived for a period of flight testing at the airport on the 9th April 2014.

When testing any new airplane, like the new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, the Boeing Test & Evaluation team leaves no stone unturned in making sure the plane performs safely, even under extreme circumstances. Few tests exemplify this more than what is referred to as “abuse takeoffs” or “engine-out” testing
See how GE’s cutting edge testing capabilities are driving innovation every day.
The validation of Airbus’ A350 XWB in various climatic conditions continued with a hot weather campaign during June at Al Ain in the United Arab Emirates. These evaluations utilized the no. 3 developmental A350 XWB, designated MSN003.
In order to achieve certification, the 787-9 was subjected to a crosswinds test that required flight test engineers on “wind watch” to scour the globe looking for airports with properly windy conditions.
The A350 XWB is the first-ever Airbus jetliner to be subjected to extreme weather testing at the U.S. Air Force’s McKinley Climatic Laboratory in Florida. For these evaluations, the company’s MSN2 developmental aircraft was exposed to a range of temperatures — from 45 deg. C to -40 deg. C — to validate various aircraft systems, including its in-flight entertainment, air conditioning, galley, water and waste systems.
