During the time it was on display in Boeing Plaza, thousands of people toured the A350. This new Airbus jetliner (serial no. 2) is on a promotional tour of the U.S. and has already been ordered by United and Delta Airlines. The A350 touts advanced technology in construction, aerodynamics, fuel consumption and flight controls. The "extra wide body" designation is used to describe the 221-inch cross-section of the passenger cabin, which includes a more effective air management system and lower noise levels. The 219-feet long airliner can carry 325 passengers on flights over 7,500 miles.
Below are some views of the Airbus A350-900 in Boeing Plaza. A future post will feature the A350 airshow sequence.
