Yesterday the MSN4 prototype landed in Seville airport of San Pablo in order to perform during coming days some external noise tests. This is the first time the A350 XWB lands in a Spanish airport.
The noise testing is being done in the air base of Moron de la Frontera, where the same type of tests have been already completed for the A380 and the A400M flying prototypes.
This military airport has not in place the noise limitations that are in place in civil airports.
