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. 

Soko G-4 Super Galeb

The Super Galeb is similar to the BAe Hawk, including having horizontal stabilisers with anhedral and swept wings. The leading edge of the vertical stabiliser is not as curved though. Also the forward part of the canopy consists of a front and two side panels. 

Stearman (Boeing) 75 (PT-13/PT-17/N2S)

This primary trainer has a radial engine up front, sometimes enclosed with a cowling, but often open. The main gear has single, streamlined struts. Finally, the vertical stabiliser has a rounded triangular shape, with a forward swept trailing edge.

Sud-Est SE210 Caravalle

The medium-size jetliner has the cockpit of the deHavilland Comet and triangular cabin windows. While this should make it already easy to recognise, it is also the only jet airliner with two engines attached to the rear fuselage and a cruciform tail.

Sukhoi Su-24 Fencer

The Sukhoi Su-24 can be regarded as the Soviet look-a-like of the General Dynamic F-111. Both twin-jet fighters/bombers have variable sweep wings, mounted high on the fuselage and a conventional tailplane. The main differences are in the air intakes and the nummer of wheels on the main landing gear.

Sukhoi Su-25 Frogfoot

This is a ground attack aircraft in the same categorie as the Fairchild A-10. It has a comparable configuration as the PZL Iryda, Kawasaki T-4, M346 and Alpha Jet. In particular the two-seat variant is similar, but most versions have a single seat. Also notable are the nearly straight wings.

Sukhoi Su-27 family

The Su-27 variants are quite similar in appearance as the smaller MiG-29. To recognise the Su-27 look at the forward retracting nose gear, straight vertical stabilisers and are intakes, the drooped down forward fuselage and the signature centre line fuselage stinger, which protrudes well aft of the engine exhausts.

Sukhoi Su-57

The Su-57 is the Russian counterpart of the F-22 and also a look-a-like. The Sukhoi has round exhausts, air intakes under the wings and vertical stabilisers that are nearly triangular.

Sukhoi Su-7, Su-17, Su-20 & Su-22 Fitter

Like other Soviet designed fighter aircraft the Sukhoi Fitter has the air intake in the nose of the aircraft, providing air to the jet engine in the rear fuselage. You might mistake it for a MiG-21, but that aircraft has delta wings, while the Fitter has swept wings. Also the shock cone in the nose is smaller on the Sukhoi.

Sukhoi Super Jet

Similar is size and external appearance as the Embraer 170/175 the single exhaust engine nacelles make for an easy recognition of the SSJ. Of course there are also more subtle differences, like in the cockpit windows.

Supermarine Spitfire

One of the most famous fighters of the second World War is especially recognised by its elliptical wings, a liquid cooled engine in the front and rectangular radiators underneath the wings. The main landing gear retracts outward. Most versions have a short of "blown up" canopy.
