Airbus A350 on training exercise at Stornoway Airport

One of the world's biggest commercial airliners has been involved in a training exercise at a Scottish island airport.

The Airbus A350 arrived over Stornoway Airport, on Lewis, from Toulouse in France on Wednesday.

Its crew flew to the island to train in the strong cross winds that are frequently experienced there, BBC Scotland understands.

They have been carrying out what is known as a "touch-and-go" exercise, which involves making a series of approaches to the runway.
