With a much lower flying weight than usual, the A350-1000 can fly much more aggressively, banking hard and swooping in ways that would normally be uncomfortable for any passengers on board.

It's built using lighter weight materials, including carbon fibre, to keep the weight down and therefore use less fuel when flying.
