First flown in February of 1987, the Airbus A320 is a family of modern commercial airliners that feature side stick controllers, glass cockpits, and advanced flight software. Nearly 7,000 have been manufactured — including shortened A318s and A319s, and lengthened A321s — most of which remain in service today. It is the world's fastest selling jet airliner in history.
This 1/400 scale, die cast model — a replica of the A320 "Sharklet," a new fuel-efficient Airbus introduced in 2009 — features a striking blue livery and shark mouth, simulated cockpit and cabin windows, realistic engine nacelles, and a mid-flight display stand. Measures approximately 3¾" long with a 3¼" wingspan.
