Beautiful high-quality reproduction of Airbus A300 B1, B2, and B4. The virtual cockpit is sublime, included with 10 liveries (like ZERO-G) and custom sounds.
Only two were built: the first prototype, and a second aircraft which was leased in November 1974 to Trans European Airways (TEA). TEA instantly subleased the aircraft for six weeks to Air Algérie. It has accommodation for 300 passengers (TEA) or 323 passengers (Air Algérie) with a maximum weight of 132,000 kg and two General Electric CF6-50A engines of 220 kN thrust.
The first production version. Powered by General Electric CF6 or Pratt & Whitney JT9D engines (the same engines that powered the Boeing 747-100, "the original jumbo jet") of between 227 and 236 kN thrust, it entered service with Air France in May 1974. The prototype A300B2 made its first flight on June 28, 1973 and was certificated by the French and German authorities on 15 March 1974 and FAA approval followed on May 30, 1974. The first production A300B2 (A300 number 5) made its maiden flight on 15 April 1974 and was handed over to Air France a few weeks later on May 10, 1974. The A300B2 entered revenue service on 23 May 1974 between Paris and London.
