Aircraft Versions

Wed Jul 21, 2004 7:27 pm

Can anyone out there explain to me what the different version letters on
Boeing and Airbus aircraft means, i.e. 757-xxx(ET), 747-xxx(SCD),
747-xxxB, A330-xxxX and so on. I know a few, like F=Freighter,
SP=Special Performance and so on, but there are quite a few I don't
know what they mean. I did a search for "versions" on this
forum but didn't find anything useful although I'm sure this topic has
been up before.
Regards, Janne.

Here are the "versions" I can think of:
ER: Extended Range
SUD: Stretched Upper Deck (Most were KLM's 742s, and they look like 743s)

For the A340-300X, the "X" was a designation used by Airbus, although it was originally an "E" for "enhanced", but the "X" stuck (or at least in the database  Big grin).

If you have questions on "versions", let us know.

M=Modifitsirovannyy (modified)

IL-76TD or MD
Transportnyy = Transport
Dal'nyy = "Far Away", long distance
M = Modifitsirovannyy (modified)

SCD = side cargo door
C = convertible
CF = converible freighter
SF = special freighter

Another acronym for aircraft versions is
QC which stands for Quick Change, from passenger to Cargo and vice versa.
I think only the B737 and B727 had this possibility

What does the NG stand for which you often see on the end of a 737?

NG = Next Generation. I think it's a generic name for the -700, -800 and -900 series 737's.

Thanks for all the feedback.
And Rwylie77, I think even I can answer your question. NG=Next Generation.

The last two digits in the Boeing model designator refer to the customer who originally ordered or took delivery of the aircraft.

For a list of these codes:

ET=Expanded Tankage or Extra Tankage, it's usually an implied designation on 767ERs and 777ERs. For example, the full designation of a United 777-200ER is Boeing 777-222/ER(ET) but people usually drop off the ET because it's nessecary to have an ER. All 767ERs are ETs except for some very early 762s delivered to Air Canada and El Al, with only a higher maximum takeoff weight (MTOW) than the standard 762.

SCD=Side Cargo Door. An example designation for this would 747-251F(SCD). On the 747, you don't have to be an SCD to be an F. Remember, the 747 can nose load. For most other planes, SCD and F are mutually inclusive.

B doesn't directly stand for anything. It just means having higher weights on the 747. The 742 was originally the 747B. A few 747-100Bs were built, probably with enough range to handle JFK-ATH versus JFK-fra with a standard 741. There are no 747-200 base models or "A"s. The B isn't really nessecary, but most publications and official sources leave it on to avoid confusion with the original 747B designation.

X, again doesn't really stand for anything. This should tell you all you need to know: http://airtransportbiz.free.fr/Aircraft/A340-300E.html

Okay, what about Airbus?

For Ex, A330-243, 4 is the engine type.. so what about the 3? what does it stand for?
A300, A319, A320, A321, A332, A333, A343, A346, A388, B734, B738, B744, B763*, B772, B773, B788, F70, MD11, CRJ7, CRJ2, Q400, MD82, MD83, E145*, E190* (*=new)

Airbus engine codes

0 - GE (CF6)
1 - CFM (CFM56)
2 - PW (JT9D or 4000, plus that nasty small one for the A318)
3 - IAE (V2500)
4 - RR (Trent family)

The first digit of the 3 is the subvariant, second engine type, third indicates configuration for range and tanks etc. if I'm not mistaken
Lead me not into temptation, I can find my own way there...

What does 757-24APF mean? That is what I come up with when
searching for N427UP. Is 24A the customer code and PF some kind
of version or is "A P F" the version?
p.s. Had to put blanks between the letters in A P F as a countermeasure
to some kind of acronym expansion going on here.

NG for real airplanes is Next Generation. NG for Herpa models is New Generation, a designation used for the new landing gears.

This will be a long post. Anyway here is a pretty recent list of Airbus version numbers and Boeing customer codes.

OD-BWH: The second digit in Airbus designations is the engine manufacturer and the third the engine type (varies by ac).

Janne: "757-24APF": 2 is for the 200, 4A is UPS. PF means parcel freighter or package freighter. Not entirely sure which.

Airbus version numbers

1st digit : version

2nd digit : engine manufacturer :

0 = General Electric
1 = CFM International
2 = Pratt and Whitney
3 = IAE (International Aero Engines)
4 = Rolls Royce
6 = Alliance (for the A380)

3rd digit : engine type (depends on the aircraft model) :

-101 = CF6-50C
-103/203 = CF6-50C2
-120/220 = JT9D-59A
-601 = CF6-80C2A1
-603 = CF6-80C2A3
-605 = CF6-80C2A5
-608 = CF6-80C2A8
-620 = JT9D-7R4H1
-622 = PW4158

-203 = CF6-80A3
-204/304 = CF6-80C2A2
-222/322 = JT9D-7R4E1
-308 = CF6-80C2A8
-324 = 4152
-325 = 4156A

-111 = CFM56-5B8/P
-112 = CFM56-5B9/P
-121 = PW6122
-122 = PW6124

-111 = CFM56-5B5/P
-112 = CFM56-5B6/P
-113 = CFM56-5A4
-114 = CFM56-5A5
-115 = CFM56-5B7/P
-131 = IAE V2522-A5
-132 = IAE V2524-A5
-133 = IAE V2527M-A5

-111/211 = CFM56-5A1
-131/231 = IAEV2500-A1
-212 = CFM56-5A3
-214 = CFM56-5B4/P
-232 = IAEV2527-A5
-233 = IAEV2527E-A5

-111 = CFM56-5B1
-112 = CFM56-5B2
-131 = IAEV2530-A5
-211 = CFM56-5B3/P
-231 = IAEV2533-A5
-232 = IAEV2530-A5

-202 = CF6-80E1A4
-203 = CF6-80E1A3
-223/323 = PW4168A
-243/343 = Trent 772-B60
-301 = CF6-80E1A2
-321 = PW4164
-322 = PW4168
-341 = Trent 768-60
-342 = Trent 772-60

-211/311 = CFM56-5C2
-212/312 = CFM56-5C3
-213/313 = CFM56-5C4
-541 = Trent 553-61
-642 = Trent 556-61

-841 = Trent 970
-861 = GP 7270

Note that this nomenclature does NOT apply to early versions of the A300 (versions B1, B2-1C, B2K-3C and SA)">B4-2C), all powered by GE CF6-50C2R.

For the A300-600, the nomenclatures SA)">B4 (passenger), C4 (combi) and F4 (freighter) are still used.

You will also see the following codes :

CJ = Corporate Jet (A319)
E = Extended range (A319CJ, A330 and A340)
ET = Extended twin (ETOPS, for the A310 only)
F = Freighter
R = Extended range (A300-600)
ST = Super transporter (only A300-600ST "Beluga")

Wow, a lot of good info there Starlionblue.

I had always wondered why some of the A319s I fly are -112s and some are -114s.

I guess we have too much time on our hands if we wonder about that sort of thing, but I do as well  Big grin

In any case the info is probably stolen from somebody who actually knows what he is talking about. I want to thank the Internet Big grin

I thank you both, LongHauler and Starlionblur (sounds like call signs

As Eddie Izzard says on his US tour: "I'm from Europe, where the history comes from."

Actually, in Sweden you are allowed to adopt a crest of your choosing even if you are not from the nobility. You just aren't allowed to display a crown. Not that I use my crown in any case. Just a bit too pretentious...
