Because no single European manufacturer had the resources to compete with Boeing and McDonnell Douglas, France and West Germany agreed in 1969 to create the Airbus consortium.  The first Airbus, the prototype A300, flew in 1972.

Airbus is currently owned by EADS and BAE Systems (British Aerospace).  EADS is a European consortium which includes Aerospatiale of France, Construcciones Aeronauticas SA (CASA) of Spain and Daimler Chrysler Aerospace (Dornier and Messerschmitt-Bolkow-Blohm) of Germany.
