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.
We’ve uploaded video of the full demonstration our Youtube Channel. Check it out!
EAA announced more exciting details about this years AirVenture today, and if you don’t have plans to attend already you may want to make them! The biggest news is that the Military Aviation Museum’s deHavilland DH-98 Mosquito will be making its first appearance in Oshkosh. The trip is relying on a IndieGoGo crowdfunding campaign to help cover the costs of the trip. The campaign is seeking to raise $10,000 in the next 29 days and is offering some very neat perks for people who donate, including the opportunity to sit in the cockpit during an engine run up! The aircraft is one of only two flying in the world, but a non-flying example is housed in the EAA Museum in Oshkosh.
The other news is the Warbirds in Review schedule, which doesn’t seem all that major at first glance but opens up some details once you look a little closer. Tuesday will feature the Mosquito as well as the P-51B and P-51D Mustangs “Berlin Express” and “Sierra Sue”, both recent restorations that will compete for awards at the event. Wednesday lists Bob Hoover’s P-51 Mustang “Ole Yeller” along with a USAF F-16 Fighting Falcon and F-22 Raptor. The F-16 says that its attendance is pending DOD approval, but the F-22 will be present for flying demonstrations so it should be good to go. Friday’s listing includes the F-100 Super Sabre, one of the previous exciting announcements made by EAA. The final notable entry is on Saturday, when the P-38 Lightning “Scat III” (formerly “Ruff Stuff”) and an F-4 Phantom II “Scat XXVII”, both named to honor ace pilot Robin Olds, will share the stage.
EAA also recently announced that the Airbus A350 will be attending the show and demonstrating its capabilities during the week. Airbus previously brought their A380 for some mind blowing performances in 2009, and Boeing brought their 787 Dreamliner in 2011.
This is truly shaping up to be one of the best AirVentures in recent memory and it is a little more than a month away!
