The France-based aircraft maker flew its battery-powered E-Fan over the Farnborough International Airshow. Here's a look.
The French aircraft maker brought its hulking 550-passenger A380 and its diminutive electric E-Fan to the UK airshow, a major sales event on the aviation industry calendar.
The aviation industry spends big bucks and plans years in advance. Airbus sells 496 passenger jets at the UK airshow.
The France-based aircraft maker believes there's a place in the market, not just the R&D lab, for the battery-powered two-seater it showed at the Farnborough airshow.
New jets get a lot of attention at the Farnborough airshow, but Airbus believes there's demand for an older plane revamped with new, more efficient engines.
With thousands of aviation enthusiasts on hand, Airbus' newest airplane -- and its response to Boeing's Dreamliner -- took off on its first flight this morning in France.
Shortly after the French aircraft maker finishes high-elevation tests in Bolivia on one version of the energy-efficient jet, it begins cold-weather testing on Baffin Island.
Making sure the new energy-efficient jet works fine at minus 18 degrees Fahrenheit, the French aircraft maker takes its A350 to northern Canada. Here's a look at the testing.
Airbus is expected to make the first flight of the A350 XWB this summer. With Boeing reeling from recent problems with the 787, a new air war is about to get started.
It was a good day for Airbus publicity as its energy-efficient passenger A350 jet flew over the high-profile air show and the French president hitched a ride in an A400M airlifter.
