The spoilers are deployed and flaps are full so this either landing or suicide

Check Blagnac on google maps and you'll see that this beautiful bird touches down about 300 meters after the beginning of the runway... still looks like a rotation

As the photographer of this picture: I confirm to you that it was a full stop landing sequence!!

Great picture, but a few things to correct.
The A300/A310 production line was open until 2007!!
It is doing a taking off or maybe touch and go, but less likely. If not, it would mean they landed half or 2/3 down the runway as the building you see in the back are located that far down. Also this kind of flare is a bit to risky with a new build, even for test pilots like myself.

For those who didn't know. this aircraft shown above is brand new. but the year 2007 was the last year for airbus A300's to be produced. after the deliveries are completed. they ceased the production of the A300 along with my favorite Airbus, the Longer range A310. I think the last A300 was delivered to Fed-Ex

Nice capture, and wow, what a rotation! Just to clear up any doubt, this aircraft WAS new at the time of the picture, it's first flight was on 11 Jan 2007 just a couple of months before this picture was taken. I too didn't realise A300 were still being built so late!

Not sure what that is, new planes are before that green color so maybe they painted it silver or green as a primer?

Nice photo. Interesting to see an older aircraft before it's repainted. :)

To the Colombian pal: I don't think Airbus is still producing the A300... This one is probably at the factory for some kind of special maintenance work or verification... Take a look at the fuselage: those green spots on the metal are a sign of the age of the airplane... Are corrosion spots! Regards! =D

This is a flare? wow the angle of the plane looks like its taking off!

The only thing painted in this beauty are the engines. Still I love it. T.B.

I find it a remarkable achievement for Airbus to still be producing the A300 after all this years (even though it may have just a few months/years ahead. Great picture
