Just realised I forgot to upload content from the A350 route proving flight last year. But better later than never.
Part 1 - Arrival
I'm used to seeing the A330 coming in for approach. It's quite distinguishable with its high nose attitude and landing gear sticking out with its big trailing edge flaps. Like a duck coming in for landing. This however was quite different.
Coming in over the threshold of runway 25.
And here's the flare...
Reversers were already stowed by the time it rolled past intersection A1.
Part 2 - A Closer Look
Let's start off with a front on shot. Face to face with the raccoon eyes.
Here she is full length, parked at bay 9.
Part 3 - The Departure
Pushback onto taxiway C.
It started to rain heavily during the pushback.
Took full length runway departure despite the light load. Those engines are really powerful judging by how high it came across the terminal.
Crossing fingers to see another one of these here again soon.
