Airbus Industrie A310

While the A300 was under development, a smaller capacity variant was considered.  The A310 was officially launched in 1978 and the prototype first flew in 1982.  The fuselage is essentially the same as the A300 except considerably shorter.  The wing and horizontal tail surfaces are new, including a high-tech wing from BAe of reduced area and span.
