Aircraft Data

The Airbus A340 is a 4 engined long range wide body airliner. The A340 family was developed alongside the A330, with much commonality between the types. They both also share the fly-by-wire electric cockpits and side controllers of the A320 line.

The -600 is an update of the earlier A340 versions, with a revised wing, new engines and improved cockpit, the -600 has the longest fuselage of any airliner, and is meant to be a replacement for early Boeing 747s.
