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. 

Folland Gnat

The Folland Gnat was once the Royal Air Force's primary jet trainer. It is a small aircraft with nearly rectangular air intakes and as specialty the rearward retracting main gear. All gears have the door attached to the gear leg, perpendicular to the air flow.

Fouga CM170 Magister & CM175 Zephyr

The butterfly or V-tail makes this primary jet trainer very easy to recognise. Apart from this the aircraft has a remarkably short landing gear and long engine nacelles in the wing roots, against the fuselage.

Developed in Japan this twin was built in production by Rockwell as the Commander 700. It is a low wing aircraft with piston engines mounted in the wing. The nose is relatively long, while the cabin is short. Look for the trapezium shaped cabin windows!

Fuji KM-2 & LM-1/2

In essence this is a Beech T-34 Mentor with a wider fuselage, allowing side-by-side seating, and a different canopy. The tail, nose, wings and gear are typically of the Beechcraft.

Fuji T-1

Japan's first jet aircraft was this trainer. It resembles a stretched North American F-86 with a long canopy with a single frame near the front. The air intake in the nose is wider than it is high.

GAF Nomad

The Australian Nomad has very big cockpit windows compared to its size. Additionally, the twin-wheel main landing gear retracts in pods next to the fuselage, where the wing struts are attached to the fuselage. The vertical stabiliser has a low sweep dorsal fin and a forward swept trailing edge.

General Dynamics F-111

The F-111 has variable sweep wings placed on top of the fuselage. The air intakes below it have the shape of quarter circles. The canopy is flush with the top of the fuselage. Finally, the main landing is rather short and has single wheels; the nose gear has two.

The GA8 & GA10 Airvan can be seen as a short Cessna Caravan with a square fuselage, a large nearly triangular vertical stabiliser, smaller dorsal fin and smaller exhaust. It also resembles the Galiván 358M and Explorer 350R. Look at the vertical tail (and also main gear) to keep then apart.

Gloster Meteor

United Kingdom's first operational jet fighter has a typical location of the two engines: they are in the wings, with the wings seemingly going straight through the long nacelles. 

Grob G120

The big canopy is the main recognition point of the Grob G120. For the rest the retractable gear and vertical stabiliser with straight edges and no dorsal fin may help identification. Under the rear fuselage is a single ventral fin.
