Help Identifying A Plane Type

Fri Jan 03, 2003 4:53 am

Is this an A-300 or A-310 (the first plane on the left)?

A310, only 3 exit doors not 4. I'm going to guess -300 series but im not entirely sure.

I've seen a picture of these two A310s on a.net a few weeks ago. If I remember correctly, the caption said that these A310s belong to Federal Express (too lazy to search the photo in the database)

Both the A310s are ex Air France A310-200s, which have been acquired by FedEx and are awaiting freighter conversion in the desert.

Looks like A310-200 as no wingtip fence is visible
