Shanghai Y-10

One of the first jetliners built in China was this Boeing 707 clone, the Shanghai Y-10. Especially the shape of the fuselage, wings, landing gear and engine nacelles remind of the 707. However, the cockpit windows are different and the Y-10 has no antenna on top of the vertical stabiliser, that is so typical for the Boeing.

Shin Meiwa PS-1/US-1/US-2

This is one of the largest modern amphibian aircraft. It has a cockpit area placed on top of the fuselage. Also typical are the short, but large dorsal fin and main landing gear retracting backward against the fuselage, turning ninety degrees in the process.

Short SC5 Belfast

The Short Belfast is a larger turboprop transport aircraft with as key features two rows of cockpit windows (of with the lower is interrupted), nacelles hanging below the wings and a short dorsal fin curving up to the vertical stabiliser's leading edge.

The square fuselage cross section makes the nickname flying shoebox quite fitting for the Short Skyvan. This fuselage is matched to braced, high mounted wings, an H-tail and a fixed landing gear with all single wheels. The engine nacelles are tiny.

Short SD3-30 (Shorts 330)

The Shorts 330 has the same basic configuration as the earlier Skyvan, but is bigger, has a more pointed nose, has more cabin windows, bigger engne nacelles with exhausts on the side and a retractable landing gear. The main gear retracts in streamline pods next to the fuselage.

The stretched version of the Shorts 330 has a single vertical stabiliser, so it is more conventional than its predecessor. Still the main feature are kept: the square fuselage cross section, the strut braced wings and the main landing gear retracting in streamline pods.

SIAI Marchetti SF600 Canguro

The Canguro has long, non-tapered wings mated to a square cross section fuselage. It also has a fixed gear, sometimes with streamlined fairings over the wheels. The main gear has double wheels and is attached to small stubs at the bottom of the fuselage. (photo: Fsel55/WikiMedia)

SIAI-Marchetti S.211 & Leonardo M345

This basic jet trainer is looks a bit like a small Kawasaki T-4 or Alpha Jet, but then with one engine. There are semi circular or rounded rectangular air intakes, and the wings directly are attached to the air channel. The exhaust pipe is at the very end of the fuselage. 

SIAI-Marchetti SF260

This basic trainer is known for its sleek design with bubble canopy over the side-by-side cockpit. Tip tanks are standard. Most were delivered to military operators, but a civil version is available as well.

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.
