Last 2 Numbers In Aircraft Model Name.

Mon Jan 07, 2002 11:13 am

Hey all,
I was just wondering how you know what the last two numbers in a aircraft's name are? Like 747-452 or A300-605? The 52 and 05 part is what I'm wondering about.
Does this have anything to do with what airline opperates the aircraft? Or is it something else like configuration or something? Anyways, thought I'd ask.
Thanks all.
