Now: Airbus First Flight - 2nd Delta A220
11:20 (16:20 UTC) - November 22, 2018 - by Sylvain Faust for Fliegerfaust
This morning at 10:59am (15:59 UTC) the 2nd A220 (CSeries) to be delivered to Delta Airlines just left Mirabel airport for its first pre-delivery test flight.
This is MSN (manufacture serial number) 50022, an A220-100 (CS100). The first Delta A220, MSN 50020, was delivered on October 26, 2018. MSN 50021 will be delivered after 50022.
As per my latest future A220 Production Update, this first flight is late by a few days. The reason is the local weather around the Montreal/Mirabel area with very low ceilings.
