The A320 family was the first to fully feature a "glass cockpit”, and
contained the first fully digital fly-by-wire flight control system in a civil
airliner. The traditional yoke control column was eliminated, replaced
with side-by-side controllers enabling pilots to send
computer-generated electrical impulses to motors that drove the flight
control surfaces on the wings and tail. This modification eliminated
more than 400 pounds of cabling and other equipment.
The A320 was also one of the quietest aircraft on the market in 1989.
The A320's fuselage was 8 inches wider than the 727-200 it replaced in
the Northwest Airlines fleet, allowing more room in aisles to move
through the cabin. A320s used approximately 50 percent less fuel
than similarly sized aircraft in the Northwest Airlines fleet.
Acquired by Delta during the merger with Northwest, this model bears
registration number N365NW and ship 3265 and represents one of the
first Delta A320 aircraft to be painted with the Delta name and widget
on the underside of the fuselage.
