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. 

Saab 91 Safir

The Saab Safir has a rather short tricycle gear with the legs close to each other, multifaceted canopy windows and a vertical stabiliser with a nearly unswept leading edge and forward swept trailing edge. 

The Triumph seems to be a distant cousin of the Honda Jet, because the Triumph’s engines are also above the wing. It is also called a three-surface airplane with normal wings, a T-tail and canards. (photo: Scaled Composites)

The V-Jet II looks quite unorthodox with a butterfly tail, engine intakes on top of the fuselage and wings with a slight forward sweep. The V-Jet II was used as a testbed for the new Williams FJX2 engine as well as showing the feasibility of a mini-bizjet. (photo: Sergey Ryabtsev/WikiMedia)

Scottish Aviation Twin Pioneer

The three fin tail and fixed tail wheel landing gear are the main recognition points of the Twin Pioneer. The wings are braced by three struts: to the fuselage, engine nacelles and wings.

Seawind International Seawind

The Seawind has a single engine attached to the top of the vertical stabiliser. The horizontal stabilisers are immediately behind, giving the amphibian aircraft almost a T-tail. Officially it is a cruciform tail though. Also typical are the bent down wingtips, acting as floats.


The Jaguar attack aircraft has two rectangular, rather small air intakes at the side of the fuselage, feeding engines with exhausts before the end of the fuselage, in front of the horizontal stabilisers. Another typical feature is the claw-like two wheel main landing gear.

Seversky P-35

This pre World War 2 fighter has elliptical wings (although the leading edge is practically straight) and a partially retractable main gear. The latter has fairings around the legs and retracts backward in the wings.

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 large 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.
