It`s funny, after seeing Air Sichuan`s first A350, all other liveries seem a little......dull :)

Seriously, it`s good to see this pic of Air Mauritius`s a350 maiden flight, looks good to me.

I am still wondering. These two planes have been marked as having passed CAF quite some time ago, and are still sitting here. How does it make sense ? I remember the word was cabin items were missing for QR planes, but is CAF not done only when all equipments are in place ? Or did they do CAF while still waiting for the installation of some additional cabin elements (carpet, seats, toilet doors, I do not know...) that are going to just be visually inspected before actual delivery ?
QR is still a mystery to me.

MSN 163 is now entering final assembly. MSN 172 will follow quickly behind MSN 184, and MSN 161 is behind MSN 185.


As we are two weeks further down the line: MSN 172 has entered final assembly and parts for MSN 161 are arriving at Station 59. Should be in final assembly shortly.

They were technically delivered to the lessor but not flown away as multiple changes required for the new lessee.

The spreadsheet tracks when the frames leave TLS as it is not easy to track technical delivery.

It might just be only me, but I find this quite annoying sometimes and its not the first time this particular photographer has done this. I mean he/she could have let the 747 pass first and then take the photo of the Vietnam Airlines A350. Either that or at least label the photo properly noting the aircraft in the background.
