A Tribute To The Airbus A300/310

Mon Jul 16, 2007 3:33 am

'This last week marked the delivery of the last ever Airbus A300/310 series aircraft ever to roll-out of Toulouse. The aircraft spearheaded Airbus into the limelight and established the company as an innovative pioneer of our industry.

The airplane was the very first wide-body twin engine aircraft that was ever brought to the market and still has a special place in the hearts of many.'

The very first time I flew it was on an A300. I was 13 back then and very impressed by just about everything. The A300 and, by extension, Airbus has been a love affair for me since that day.

I'll miss that plane, but it's good to know we'll still see her in the sky for years to come.

A300/310 is a truly first original Airbus design, which is so familiar to us and similar to other current Airbus creations.
Soon the A350 will become a new twin-engine update.

The A300 and A310 were indeed ground-breaking aircraft and helped to establish Airbus as a major aeronautical manufacturer. I have flown on the A300 4 times (never on the A310). While my first flight was on AF in 1978, it was my second flight in 1983 on Eastern (EA) that was most significant. About halfway into the MIA - BGI leg of the flight which continued into POS the Captain spoke at length about the A300, introducing it to those passengers who had not heard about it and describing the many new features of the plane. Indeed IFE was a new concept to me at the time (I had only previously experienced on BW TriStars) and so listening to the music channels was so much fun! I was also amazed at the mighty plane making its way along on just 2 engines - indeed that was one of the A300's selling points. The plane also had movie equipment installed but this was not used on this flight.

As the A300 now ends its long production run let us all remember it as the most defining moment of Airbus which helped to galvanize the shaky consortium of builders into the powerhouse we know today.

Hop to it, fly for life!
