      Anybody know why the A300 and A310 have their wings mounted so far up on the fuselage?

      As opposed to what? The C-5 or DC-9? Your answer might be your question.

      Good point Steve, I should have been more specific. Relative to most other widebody airliners with low wings, the 300/310 have their wings mounted very high up. Most others have a noticeable WBF that extends underneath the fuselage, with these two as an exception.

      Because they’re made by Airbus.
