A350 will attend Oshkosh 2015 in July.

An Airbus A350 flight test aircraft will demonstrate its flying capabilities and be open for public tours at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2015, scheduled 20-26/July at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh.

The Airbus A350 XWB will arrive “The World’s Greatest Aviation Celebration” on the opening day with an aerial 7min. demonstration during the afternoon air show.

After public tours of the aircraft on Tuesday 21/July at AirVenture’s Boeing Plaza, the A350 XWB will perform another aerial demonstration during the air show on Wednesday 22/July, prior to its departure at around 15:00h towards Toulouse, with a stop for refueling at General Mitchell International Airport (MKE) at Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

“Airbus is pleased to bring the next generation of commercial aircraft technology, performance, and comfort to Oshkosh this year, giving the public its first viewing of the A350 in North America,” said Barry Eccleston, president of Airbus Americas.

“This builds on our tradition of showcasing aircraft with the aviation community at AirVenture that has included memorable appearances by our Beluga in 2003 and the Airbus A380 in 2009.”
