[Photo] Airbus A350 takes off as Airbus A380 comes to land at Farnborough

A nice head-on combo image of the Airbus A350 and Airbus A380 during Farnborough International Airshow 2014.

Even if the F-35 saga is what most people will remember about this year’s edition, Farnborough International Airshow, in UK, featured several other highlights, including, as always, some stunning air displays by huge commercial planes.

Among them, the demo of Boeing 787-9, the newest and biggest version of the Dreamliner, with some stunning maneuvers performed by the 280-seat passenger planes, and the displays of the A350 and A380.

The Airbus planes flew their displays in sequence:  as the cool image above, taken by Rich Cooper, shows while the Airbus A380 (which was preceded by an A400M Grizzly) was coming to land at the end, the A350 took off to perform its demo flight.
