The secret side of the Airbus 350

The first revelation to be shared was that there was a ‘secret’ crew rest compartment on board the plan.

Well, it’s a secret to us passengers – the crew are making good use of it.

It’s filled with two comfy beds that come with a curtain and reading light, perfect for naps or reading breaks.

The pilot also gives viewers look beneath the cockpit as he takes the camera through a trapdoor in the floor.

Beneath there is the electronics compartment.

This is essentially a server room stacked with computers.

Beyond that is the cargo area, which is surprisingly spacious.

In fact, from a passenger’s perspective, all of the secret rooms are startlingly big.

Up in the cockpit, the pilot showed his viewers what data appears on his screen, including the position of the plane and the route its flying on.

This isn’t the only plane that he has given subscribers an up-close and personal look at, as he has also filmed onboard an Airbus 330 and 340.

It seems like we’re spoiled for choice lately when it comes to behind-the-scenes access to Airbus planes.

Only a few months, a video was shared online which showed the view from the cockpit of a Airbus 350.

Let’s just say, it was magnificent.
