Airbus A300

The Airbus A300 was the first product of the European conglomerate, built to take on the likes of Boeing and McDonnell Douglas by providing European carriers with a home-bred alternative. The result was a fairly successful airliner that remained in production for the best part of 35 years and even hit it big in that bastion of wealth and homeland of its rivals, America!
