The A350 wings are undergoing the final stages of assembly in Bremen and will be transported to France for the final assembly shortly. It seems that on time for the official FAL inauguration to be held next 23/October in Toulouse.

As we could watched in September with the delivery of the first set of wings to the FAL in Toulouse (for Static specimen, photo below), each wing requires a Beluga transport aircraft.
