The Airbus A320 is a short- to medium-range, narrow-body commercial passenger twin-engine jet airliner which can carry a maximum of 180 passengers. It is produced by the European manufacturer Airbus S.A.S. As a first version it is the base model for the low wing aircrafts of the A320 family. The A320 family also pioneered the use of digital fly-by-wire flight control systems, as well as side-stick controls, in commercial aircraft, which is why they were also called “Atari Planes”.
In September 1999, the airbus bearing the serial number 1072 was delivered to China Eastern in Shanghai and took to the skies under registration B-2400 up until 2014. After just over 15 years of service, first and foremost in Chinese airspace, it was decommissioned in 2014, and then scrapped in 2015.
