thenoflyzone Posted November 9, 2021 Share Posted November 9, 2021 Airbus is conducting a fello'fly test today from TLS to YUL with 2 A350s. Airbus 1 (AIB1), an A350-900, and Airbus 2 (AIB2), an A350-1000, are the planes in question. They are currently airborne and have an ETA of around 9h40 local. http://www.flightradar24.com/data/flights/aib1 http://www.flightradar24.com/data/flights/aib2 The planes will fly in formation, at very close proximity. It is expected to produce a fuel savings of between 5-10% per trip for the trailing plane. The planes will head back to TLS tomorrow.
