A300ST-Beluga

Mon Oct 18, 2004 1:25 pm

Does anybody know what all the mods are to make an A300ST, compared with a regular A300?
Besides the added and extended vertical stabilizers, lowered cockpit, front cargo door, and shape in general, of course...
Also, does it have a 2 or 3 crew cockpit? What about certification?

Any answers appreciated;

Travel? Why would i travel if I can watch it on TV?

Hello Videns.

Regarding your question ....."does it have a 2 or 3 crew cockpit?"

The cockpit photos in the first two links below seem to show that the A300ST Beluga has a flightdeck for 2 pilots. Although, the aft section of the cockpit can't be seen in these shots, so, maybe there is a third crew member station out of view.

Here's some general info about the A300ST.
