American Airlines Airbus Industrie A300B4-605R  N7076A      (c/n   610)

                                     Developed in the late 60s as a European answer for a shorter range Boeing 747, the Airbus 300
                                     first flew in 1972.  Originally intended as a 300 seater (hence the model number), this was scaled
                                    down later to a smaller machine with 250 seats.   The Boeing 767, built to counter the impact the
                                    A300 was having on the airline market closely resembles the European machine.  An identifying
                                    feature is that the guide rails on the trailing edge Fowler flaps of the Airbus are slightly larger.
