Identify by airplane characteristics








Below check the specific characteristics of the aircraft you are looking for. You can select multiple items for each characteristic. The results will be filtered automatically. 

Breguet Br19

While different versions can significantly differ, the Br19 variants have in common lower wings that have a smaller span than the upper wings. These wings are hardly staggered. The single or double struts between upper and lower wings are tilted about 45 degrees, when viewed from the front.

Brewster A-34/SB2A Buccaneer

The Brewster A-34/SB2A can be considered a failure, being overweight and underpowered by its radial piston engine. The aircraft has a rather long nose and long main landing gear legs, that retract inward in the wings. The crew sits under a long, multi framed canopy, which has two sliding parts, the rear one forward and the front one backward.

Bristol 170 Freighter

Designed specifically to transport cars across the Channel, the Bristol 170 Freighter has clamshell doors in the nose to facilitate loading. The cockpit is above the cargo bay, giving it a rather fat appearance at the front. This makes for an easily recognisable prop aircraft with a fixed, tail-wheel landing gear.

Bristol 175 Britannia

The Britannia four engined turboprop has big nacelles with ring shaped intakes, four wheels on the main gears, a pointed nose with many cockpit windows and oval cabin windows.

The Jetstream has a relatively wide, short fuselage, with a circular cross section, large oval cabin windows, seven flat cock­pit win­dows and a pointed nose. The main gear has single wheels and retracts inward in the wings, while the nose gear has two wheels.

The British Aerospace 146 is a four engined medium size jet airliner, of which most versions are passenger aircraft with cabin windows. That latter makes it stand out compared to similar sized transport aircraft. The BAe146 also have a two wheel main landing gear retracting sideways, and a speed brake in the tail cone.

The ATP is essentially a modernised, stretched version of the Hawker-Siddeley 748. It is fitted with modern turboprop engines, driving six-blade propellers. The cabin windows are small and the tail fin is swept.

British Aerospace EAP

This was the development aircraft for the Eurofighter Typhoon. It is a bit smaller, has double delta wings, a less tall tail with curved dorsal fin and non-tilted air intakes. (photo: Hugh Llewelyn/WikiMedia)

Typical for the Hawk are the small, long D-shaped air intakes in front of the wing roots and the curved leading edge of the vertical stabiliser. Additionally it has horizontal stabilisers with significant anhedral.

The Jetstream 41 is the stretched version of the Jetstream 31, so the two aircraft have a large similarity. Apart from the length, the main differences are in the main landing gear, engine nacelles and ventral fin.
