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. 

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.

In general the Britten-Norman Islander can be easily recognised as it is a high-wing aircraft with engines underneath the wings and a fixed landing gear. The main gear is attached to the wings at the engine nacelles, meaning long struts.

The Trislander is the three engined version of the BN-2 Islander. The third engine is located in the tail, making it easy to recognise. For the rest is looks like a larger Islander, including the long main landing gear legs attached to the wings.

CAC CA-15 Kangaroo

The designers of the CA-15 seem to have been inspired by the P-51 Mustang, but they claim not. Anyway, both aircraft are quite similar. The CA-15 has the retractable tail gear further aft though, and the bubble canopy is rather small. (photo WikiMedia)

Calidus B-250

This trainer/light fighter has many look-a-likes. The tail has a medium size dorsal fin. The canopy has two bow frames and the wings a constant dihedral. The nose gear is quite close to the prop, but not as much as on the Tucano. (photo: Mztourist/WikiMedia)

This amphibian aircraft was specifically designed as a fire fighter, being able to scoop up water from lakes, rivers and seas. The fuselage cross section is nearly square, ending in a flat tail cone. The cruciform tail is also a trademark of the aircraft.
