As I can remember, A310 and A300 are very different. A300 is a A310-B?
with much more electronic than an A310 which is a classic airliner. A300
is the prototype of the A320 series (A320-A330-A340-A319-A321).

I've heard this morning on a French radio (France Inter) that the crash of
the TARON A310 may be caused by a trottle problem, which have produce
asymetric thrust. The A320 series have an automatic asymetric recovery
system but I Think it is full manual on A310.

I am not an Airbus specialist, anybody may have more information ?
