While in Munich last week, I had the opportunity to finally see the A350 in action for myself during on of her training flights that was used to certify cockpit crew for the new Airbus.

After learning about her schedule, I took a chance that she would be be departing from the north runway at Munich so I made sure to be at the ‘Besucherpark’ observation hill well ahead of her departure time.    My gamble paid off and I was offered a front row seat on a perfect day for departures.    The sun was new, and a storm had just cleared the area leaving a perfect balance of light and background to capture the beautiful aircraft.

Not much else to say about it except enjoy the following pictures.   She’ll become more and more common as she enters service next week to Delhi and over the coming months will be joined by 9 other sisters who’ll all be based in ‘MUC’.
