Its a coincidence that you asked that.
Im only 15 and im not sure if you would need it but there is a book called "Airliner color*history AIRBUS A300"
and i JUST bought it 30 minutes ago, it has 128 pages and its full colour and it has specifications, airlines, history tells you alot about the actuall aircraft.
just a suggestion
