A321-200 series

The Airbus A321-200 series aircraft (231) was completed by the OMEGA hangar ( on January 7th, 2011. More information on the model can be found at the Hangar Website. The A321 is an extended version of A320 but the fuel tank has not been expanded giving it lesser range. Neither is the CFM56 engine changed. Therefore, the A321-100 series' range is much lesser than even the A320's. A321-200 series was built to fix that problem. In the A321, the fuel tank is extended (even though no changes were made in the engines). The Engines each give about 142,000 kg (32,000 lbs) thrust. This is why it takes time for the plane to lift off compared to the other planes. The OMEGA Hangar's FDM is made as close as possible to the original planes.
