As part of Airbus’ demonstration tour, the new Airbus A350 XWB airliner made a stop at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh Monday. The result of this trip was many satisfied airshow fans!
After departing Milwaukee’s General Mitchell International Airport in the early afternoon, the A350 made its way towards Oshkosh and the annual fly-in. The first pass was a low and slow approach, giving everyone the opportunity to see the aircraft in the landing configuration. The aircrew then did a sweet climb out followed by several more passes. These passes demonstrated the slow speed handling of the A350 and the turning radius.
After about 8 min of demonstration time, the aircrew finally set the new Airbus down on runway 36, utilizing reverse thrust to stop the aircraft at show center.
