UPS Airlines, based in Louisville, KY,  is the third-largest cargo airline worldwide flying to 779 destinations worldwide (the most of any airline) and is the second-largest operator of the Airbus A300 with 52 in their fleet.  First flown in October 1972, the A300 was the world’s first twin-engined widebody airliner and was also the first product of Airbus.  The A300F4-600R  is the freighter version of the A300−600R.  The A300-600 made its first flight in July 1983 and entered service later that year with Saudi Arabian Airlines.  A total of 313 A300-600s (all versions) have been sold.  Fuji X-E2s w/18-55mm.
