Airbus 350 lands after maiden test flight


The A350, the newest aircraft from European plane manufacturer Airbus, has landed at Toulouse Blagnac Airport following its maiden test flight.

The Airbus is designed to be more fuel-efficient, and a direct competitor to US rival Boeing's 787 Dreamliner.

It is seen as vital to the future of the planemaker, which competes with Boeing to supply the majority of the world's airlines with new planes.
