A350 XWB's Trent Engine Rolls-Out for Initial Flight Tests

Blagnac - Airbus has completed installation of the first Rolls-Royce Trent XWB flight-test engine on the A380 "flying-testbed" aircraft (MSN 001). The aircraft is depicted here at Airbus' Jean-Luc Lagardere site in Toulouse where the engine was mounted. The aircraft and engine will now be prepared for the flight-test campaign commencing in the coming weeks.
