Liebherr-Aerospace delivers the first Airbus A350 XWB-800/900 nose landing gear

The on-schedule delivery of the first Airbus A350 XWB-800/900 nose landing gear to the final aircraft assembly line in Toulouse marked an important milestone for Liebherr-Aerospace Lindenberg GmbH, based in Lindenberg (Germany).

These involved testing the shock absorber properties for landings across the entire range of application of the nose landing gear and verifying the airworthiness.

In addition to the nose landing gear, Liebherr-Aerospace
