The airbus A350 aircraft when being refuelled seems to drop when the wings are filled.How much is the drop from empty to full.Thankyou

  • $\begingroup$ Are you asking how much the wing tips drop, or how much the entire aircraft drops? $\endgroup$ – Pondlife Aug 4 '19 at 4:23

That’s going to depend on a lot of things including how well serviced the struts are, what the existing payload on the aircraft is and whether the aircraft is parked on any sort of grade.

I don’t work the A350, but I work other heavy aircraft and I’ve had them “settle” quite a bit when putting on a full fuel load.
