Next step in the MSN001; start of engines … and the typical white smoke.

The start of engines by the test-crew will take place in coming days. With the fire & emergency crews on the stand by, the A350 XWB will “come to live”. The white smoke that we will see is caused by a protective lay of oil burning off.

Testing and monitoring the engines will take two days.
