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. 

Small bizjet that looks a bit like the Cessna Citation Excel, but then with slightly swept wings, winglets and cockpit windows similar to the HondaJet. Only a couple were built.

The Intruder has a wide fuselage with side-by-side cockpit. The long, narrow air intakes are at the sides of the fuselage, slightly tilted and in front of the canopy. They feed two engines at the bottom of the fuselage, with exhausts below and just after the wings. The rear fuselage is rather slender, ending in a conventional tail with a trapezium shaped vertical stabiliser.

Grumman Albatross

The biggest of the Grumman amphibians is the Albatross. Compared to the similar shaped, but smaller Mallard it has six curved cockpit windows and a larger diameter fuselage. The standard powerplants are two radial engines in the wing's leading edge.

Grumman AO-1/OV-1 Mohawk

The Grumman Mohawk is a twin-turboprop observation and attack aircraft. Apart from the three fin tail and mid fuselage wing attachment, the cockpit seems to have traces of the S-2 Tracker.

Grumman E-2 Hawkeye

With its large radar disk on top of the fuselage the Grumman Hawkeye is hard to misidentify. Only the E-1 Trader comes close in appearance, but this has an H-tail instead of a four fin tail, apart from smaller differences.

Famous from the movie Top Gun the F-14 Tomcat is recognised by many. It has the same general appearance as the F-15 Eagle, with some notable differences. The F-14 has inward tilted wedge shaped air intakes, outward tilted vertical stabilisers and variable sweep wings. Also there is more room between the engines than on the F-15.

Grumman F4F Wildcat

Grumman's first mono-plane fighter has its wings through the middle of the short fuselage. On top the canopy pops out quite high, but remains flush with the rear fuselage. The main gear retracts into the sides of the forward fuselage. In the front is a big radial engine.

Grumman F8F Bearcat

The Bearcat is essentially a shortened F6F Hellcat with a bubble canopy as standard and a taller curved vertical stabiliser. Unlike the Hellcat it has an inward retracting main landing gear.

Grumman F9F Cougar

The F9F Cougar is the swept wing version of the F9F Panther. Like the Panther it has triangular air intakes in the wing roots and a cruciform tail. The vertical stabiliser is also triangular, sort of, with a rounded top. Additio­nally, the aircraft has one engine with an exhaust under the tail.

Grumman F9F Panther

The F9F Panther has triangular air intakes in the wing roots and a cruciform tail. The vertical stabiliser is also triangular, sort of, with a rounded top. Additio­nally, the Grumman aircraft has one engine with an exhaust under the tail. There is also a swept wing version, the F9F Cougar.
