Of the many single turboprop military training aircraft the Embraer Tucano is best distinguished by the rearward retracting nose gear, placed close to the prop. Also the air intake is directly behind the prop.

The Super Tucano is the light attack ver­sion of the original Tucano. While the main lines of the Tucano have been pre­served, the EMB314 is slightly enlarged, has a higher placed three piece canopy and a five blade prop. Also storage points for weapons under the wings are standard.

Embraer Ipanema

The Ipanema is a cropduster aircraft with non-braced wings with significant dihe­dral. The piston engine has horizontally opposed cylinders, meaning a flat nose. The vertical stabiliser is nearly rectangular. Like on other cropdusters the pilot sits high.

English Electric Canberra

Wide chord straight wings with engines in long nacelles in the wings are the main features to recognise the Canberra. Also has a low trapezoidal vertical stabiliser. First built for the Royal Air Force by English Electric it was also built as B-57 by Martin in the USA.

Epic Elite

This kit-built aircraft could be confused with the Citation Mustang, but has a more pointed nose, only two cockpit windows, round cabin windows and slightly turned up wingtips.

The Epic LT is an advanced home-built aircraft with a turboprop engine in the nose. The resemblance with in particular the Kestrel JP10 and AVIC AG300 is high. You can best look at the cockpit windows, number of cabin windows and the engine exhausts to keep them apart. The E1000 is the certified version of the Epic LT.

Epic Victory

This is a engine bizjet with the air intake in front of the vertical stabiliser, with an S-shaped tunnel to lead the air to the engine in the rear fuselage. The cabin windows are round.

The Eurofighter EF2000 Typhoon is a twin engine fighter with delta wings and canards with anhedral below the canopy. Its main recognition point are the two rectangular air intakes underneath the fuselage, which are slightly tilted inward following the fuselage contour.

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 EA400/EA500

These Extra aircraft have quite an unusual appereance with its streamlined, large diameter fuselage with circular cross section, high mounted wings and horizon­tal stabilisers placed high on the tail, making it nearly a T-tail. It has a retrac­table gear. (photo: Klever/WikiMedia)
