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. 

Extra EA-200/300/330

These Extra aircraft were the first modern aerobatic aircraft, with their short, slightly tapered wings and trapezium shaped, nearly straight vertical stabiliser. All are powered by a horizontally opposed piston engine. It comes in versions with one or two seats, and mid and low wing configurations.  

Extra EA500

The EA500 has quite an unusual appereance with its streamlined, large diameter fuselage, high mounted wings and horizontal stabilisers placed high on the tail, making it nearly a T-tail. It has a retractable gear though. (photo: Klever/WikiMedia) 

Fairchild 22-C7

The Fairchild 22 is one of the few examples of a braced single parasol wing aircraft. It can be fitted with a radial or inline piston engine. The vertical stabiliser's leading has hardly any sweep, while the trailing edge is curved.

This fighter has quite a characteristic appeareance with its H-tail, large diameter engines with separate exhausts, straight wings with many pylons and 30 mm cannon sticking out of the nose like a big cigar.

Fairchild C-119/R4Q Flying Boxcar

The bigger successor of the C-82 has the same basic tail boom configuration. The cockpit is located in the nose of the aircraft though, and all landing gears have two wheels. Some versions have one or two additional jet engines on top of the fuselage or under the wings.

Fairchild C-123 Provider

Being a tactical cargo aircraft the C-123 has a 'boxy' fuselage with many cockpit windows. The main gear retracts in the fuselage; there are no streamline bodies to hold it. The aircraft has at least two piston engines, sometimes accompanied by two additional jet engines under the wings.

Fairchild C-82 Packet

The high mounted tail booms on this cargo aircraft make (un)loading of cargo easy, through the rear fuselage. The aircraft has big single wheels on each leg, of which the main gear retracts in the tail booms. The cockpit is located high on the forward fuselage. Some versions have one or two additional jet engines on top of the fuselage or under the wings.

Fairchild F-11 Husky

The Husky is a Canadian bushplane of similar size as the Otter. Typical is the rear loading capability, due to the curved up rear fuselage. The vertical stabiliser is triangular with a rounded top. Finally, the wings have two struts each.

Fairchild-Dornier 728

You can best describe this aircraft as a Sukhoi Super Jet 100 with the engines of the Embraer 170 series. Especially the cockpit windows look much like that of the SSJ, but the whole general appearance is like the Russian regional jet. The engines have separate fan exhausts, so that makes it distinguishable from the SSJ. 

Falcon 402

This is a single turboprop conversion of the Cessna 402. The fuselage, tip tanks, cockpit window and tail are still clearly original to the Cessna, and as such key feature for recognition from similar single engine turboprops. There are versions with rectangular windows as well. (photo Kevin Cleynhens)
