While ground crew need shelter from extreme cold most planes don't. So where does Airbus test their next generation jets for cold? Canada of course as you can see in this chilling video. Go behind the scenes of this cold weather test without leaving the warm comfort of your home. The A350 XWB flew to Northern Canada for their next-generation jetliner's cold weather evaluations. Iqaluit, Canada can see temperatures reach down to -40°C and more. This Airbus video features Flight Test Specialist Engineer Julie Mautin and Bernard Besinet, Flight Test Support Engineer. Brrrr.
