FedEx At Burbank Question

I know FedEx operates A310s almost exclusively into BUR. My question is, what is the most common model of 310 that FDX use at BUR the -200 or the -300? None of the flight trackers seem to be very helpful. flightaware.com calls all the Burbank-bound FDX flights A310/J.

Any help is appreciated.

How can you tell the difference externally? I see them fly in all the time from my house. I could do a survey...  Wink

From looking at their internal schedule looks like near all are A310-200s.

Of the 3 daily flights many days only A313 planned for the remainder of June are 6/21 & 6/22 on the late afternoon MEM-BUR-IND rotation.

That's a good question. I can tell the difference between the A300 and A310 by not only the length, but by the oval APU exhaust port of the A310 as opposed to the round port of the A300. How do you tell the difference between the 312 and 313? Laxintl, any insight?

The easiest way to tell is the lack of wingtip fences (winglets) on the 312s.

Thanks Laxintl for the info.

I wonder what the difference in tonnage (metric or imperial) tonnage capacity is between the 312 and 313?

The easiest way is if the aircraft have winglets or not. All A310-300 are wiglet equipped, while near all -200s are not (a very small number late built one were equipped, but none at Fedex)

Fedex also has some different engine combinations, however I wont get into that.

Well, if someone gives me the usual landing times for the 3 flights, I can try to check visually, though it sounds like the answer was already provided.

2 of the flights normally come in between 17:00 and 18:15, while the third normally arrives at around 05:15.
