Airbus A300B1 - TEA - Trans European Airways
This photo is copyright protected and may not be used in any way without proper permission.
First flight 5 February 1973 as F-WUAC. This was the second Airbus built and the last of only two B1, shorter than the subsequent B2 and B4. As the first one was destroyed in the Seventies, it is the oldest surviving Airbus and the only B1 left. It also was the first Airbus entering commercial service. An historical aircraft deserving a better fate than its ignominous role as an evacuation exercise airframe for the BRU fire brigade... Note the cut up door frames for galley removal.
