A350 - Maiden Flight Over Puivert
As I was talking to a neighbour just before lunch, I heard an aircraft overhead, looked up, and saw a bit of history in the making.
Today was the maiden test flight of the new Airbus A350 plane from Toulouse, and here it was, accompanied very closely by what looked like a jet fighter, directly over our house.
It was travelling very slowly for a jetliner but by the time I realised what it was, it was too far away for me to dash into the house for a camera.
So I have borrowed this publicity shot from the Internet.
