Painting of the first A350 XWB MSN001 was fully completed on Monday, as the aircraft emerged in its Airbus livery out from the paint shop in Toulouse.

MSN001 is now a very important step closer to its first flight.

The aircraft painting was achieved in less than seven days and follows the recent completion of MSN001s flight-test-instrumentation (FTI) verification.

Last month the aircraft underwent its engines installation, and passed a subsequent intensive phase of ground vibration tests.

MSN001 will soon start the final tests before its maiden flight this summer.

The 2013 Paris Air Show, will take place 17-20 June at Le Bourget.
