Hot happenings in the skies this week included an amazing take-off, and a bit of a mystery.
This weekly post is my ‘round tuit’. Included are stories which caught my eye and others which I couldn’t cover in-depth during the week, but thought Flight Chic readers would want to know about.
1. This week was Thanksgiving in the US. Those who were in Toulouse on Thursday were thankful to have a unique opportunity to watch history happen as the first A350-1000 enjoyed a flawless take-off.
I was heartbroken over a last-minute fail on my video of the take-off, but Alex Macheras and Rupa Haria each got a great shot.
And at least I got a whole video of the post-flight debriefing.
And the sun came out to celebrate.
