Airbus A300B2 - Air France
Air France was the first airline to introduce the Airbus A300B on its route network. It ordered six aircraft of the A300B2 version in 1971 and the first examples were delivered in 1974. The first revenue flight took place on Air France's Paris - London Heathrow service on 23 May 1974.
The aircraft on the picture, F-BVGB, was the second aircraft in Air France service. The B2s in the Air France fleet were soon followed by A300B4s. The French national airline operated a total of twenty-five A300s (nine B2s and sixteen B4s) but didn't buy the later A300-600 version.
