I sent a note a while back about the 320's control stick.

I thought that the picture I had seen was that of the 320, but I have not
confirmed that it is not.

The 300 had the "traditional/mechanical" cockpit.
The 310 had the steering columns, and what seems to be a sidestick, and had
		some CRTs.

The 320 has	CRTs and electronic components and no steering column/yoke.

So, these planes are all different from one another. Only the 320 and 340
supposedly have the same interface.
