A350 continues flight test program and returns to Bâsel-Mulhouse airport.

Next Monday 31/March within the flight-test program of the Airbus A350, the EuroAirport will receive the visit of a flight prototype from 8:00 in the morning to carry out around 12 landings and take offs on the main north-south runway. The French DGAC has issued the authorization and informed the air traffic control. 

Last 29/January the MSN1 prototype carried out some similar tests in the same airport with several circuits and touch&go's. That was some of the last tests of the MSN1 prototype before being upgraded with the “new” Nickel-Cadmium batteries.

The Bâsel-Mulhouse-(Freiburg) airport or Euroairport(LFSB) is jointly operated by France and Switzerland. It is located in France but closest to Basel in Switzerland.
