Identify by aircraft 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. 

Douglas F3D/F-10 Skyknight

Unlike other contemporary fighters the Douglas Skyknight has straight wings and a wide fuselage so that the crew can sit side-by-side. The engines are in pods below/at the side of the fuselage, below the wings.

Douglas F4D/F-6 Skyray

This carrier based fighter is especially recognised by the triangular air intakes in the wing roots, A-4-like canopy and rounded tips of delta wings and vertical stabiliser.

Douglas SBD/A-24

This dive bomber is characterised by perforated split flaps at the trailing edge of the inner wings, a trapezium vertical stabiliser with rounded top, multi-framed canopy with rear gunner in open air. Also the rear fuselage tapers up after the wings. The retractable main gear has no gear doors.

Douglas X-3 Stiletto

This sleek research aircraft has small trapezoidal wings (like on the F-104). The nose is very long and pointed. The two engines have tilted, semi circular air intakes at the side of the fuselage, and exhausts below the rear fuselage.

Eclipse 400

The Eclipse 400 is similar in appearance as the Cirrus Vision Jet. The engine nacelle has a round intake and is placed on a pylon. Furthermore it has one cabin window and one cockpit side window, and no ventral fins. (photo: D. Miller/WikiMedia)

The Eclipse 500 and derivatives are one of the smallest aircraft with two jet engines and a T-tail. Note the comparatively small engines, small tip tanks and wingshaped fuselage, i.e. widest at the cockpit and then tapering towards the tail.

El Gavilán EL-1

This single piston powered utility aircraft developed in Colombia looks similar to the GippsAero GA-8 Airvan and Explorer 350R, but more "box like". It can best be recognised by its vertical tail: the trailing edge is a bit swept forward.

The Bandeirante commuter plane has quite typical cockpit windows, rectangular but slightly rounded cabin windows and a narrow vertical stabiliser as key features, although none of these really stand out. 

There are no prop aircraft with low wings and a T-tail as big as the Embraer Brasilia. Also noteworthy are the somewhat 's-shaped' engine nacelles. The cockpit windows are the same as on the Embraer 145 regional jet family, logical because the Brasilia formed the basis for this jet.

This aircraft is similar in size as the Canadair Regional Jet 100/200, but has a smaller fuselage diameter and engines with a single exhaust. The front section, including cockpit, is the same as the Brasilia. The tail cone has a typical exhaust pipe for the APU.
