Airbus A350XWB family flight formation

So those of you who are into aviation may know that Airbus just  released (just recently  12/19/2014) its new Airbus A350-XWB, a competitor to Boeing’s 787. As part of this they are pulling out all the stops with their promo video shot a few months back.

The promo video shows 5 new Airbus A350-WXB flying in formation and performing a few formation flying maneuvers, looks pretty neat.. The video also does a nice job of filming behind the scenes and showing you all the planning and preparation needed to get something like this produced… Have a look for yourself I think you’ll be impressed…

Aerobatic flying big lumbering commercial jetliners is nothing new.. ironically this is a bit of a far cry from the early jet commercial demonstration days, when a maverick test pilot like Tex Johnson barrel rolled the 707 during its inaugural tour.

… remember its all about “selling airplanes” as Tex told Boeing president when he got called into his office.
