MAKS 2015 (I): First encounter with the A350-900

A350-900 maks

Like every two years, Zhukovsky airfield, just outside Moscow, is home to one of the most spectacular air shows: MAKS. 

Although this is primarily an event to showcase the very best that the Russian aeronautical industry has to offer, Airbus is a regular visitor. Last edition it brought here an A380, this year it has been an A350-900 (an aircraft possibly with more chances of success in the Russian market).

In any case, it was the first time I saw it flying and I was really impressed! This must be the quietest airliner I have ever (not) heard flying!

Here are some pics from the flight display it performed...
