Airbus has said it has carried out a high-speed rejected take-off test for its new A350 airliner, Reuters has reported. The European planemaker plans to deliver its first carbon-composite jetliner to Qatar Airways by the end of the year. The braking trial is one of the costliest tests in the certification process and involves directing maximum energy to a set of worn-out brakes, causing an orange glow and smoke as the brakes reach a temperature of 1,400 degrees Celsius.
