The primary structural assembly of the first flying prototype A350 has been completed. MSN1, minus engines, was moved to the final assembly line on its own wheels for the first time. Electrical testing has been completed, hydraulic testing is coming up. After that, certification, and installation of the engines. This is the first of five flight test aircraft, with first flight aimed at mid-2013.

Thanks, will be interesting to see the bird "in the flesh" some day. My pet peevee with the Dreamliner is that, for being the grand saviour of Boeing Aeronautics that it was made out to be, its just a little too small on the tarmac (note that this is just a personal impression and no judgement about the quality or feasibility of that aircraft).
