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. 

In an attempt to modernize the Hawker-Siddeley 748 and capture a part of the booming commuter market British Aerospace basically stretched the HS748 and fitted the aicraft with modern turboprop engines, driving six-bladed propellers. The Advanced Turbo Prop (ATP) was born. 

British Aerospace EAP

This was the development aircraft for the Eurofighter Typhoon. It is a bit smaller, has double delta wings, a less tall tail with curved dorsal fin and non-tilted air intakes. (photo: Hugh Llewelyn/WikiMedia)

Typical for the Hawk are the small, bean-shaped air intakes in front of the wing roots and the curved leading edge of the vertical stabiliser. Additionally it has horizontal stabilisers with significant anhedral.

The Jetstream 41 is the stretched version of the Jetstream 31, so the two aircraft have a large similarity. Apart from the length, the main differences are in the main landing gear, engine nacelles and ventral fin.

In general the Britten-Norman Islander can be easily recognised as it is a high-wing aircraft with engines underneath the wings and a fixed landing gear. The main gear is attached to the wings at the engine nacelles, meaning long struts.

Britten-Norman BN-2A MkIII Trislander

The Trislander is the three engined version of the BN-2 Islander. The third engine is located in the tail, making it easy to recognise. For the rest is looks like a larger Islander.

Calidus B-250

This trainer/light fighter has many look-a-likes. The tail has only a small dorsal fin. The canopy has two bow frames and the wings a constant dihedral. The nose gear is quite close to the prop, but not as much as on the Tucano. (photo: Mztourist/WikiMedia)

Canadair CL-215/CL-415

This amphibian aircraft was specifically designed as a fire fighter, being able to scoop up water from lakes, rivers and seas. The fuselage cross section is nearly square, ending in a flat tail cone. The cruciform tail is also a trademark of the aircraft. 

Canadair CL-41 Tutor

For nearly four decades the Tutor was Canada's primary jet training aircraft. Characteristic for the aircraft are the side-by-side cockpit, small air intakes in the wing roots and a relatively small T-tail.

Canadair CP-107 Argus

This maritime patrol aircraft is based on the Bristol Britannia, visible in the tail and wings, but has a different fuselage including cockpit windows, bomb bays, chin-mounted radom, etc. Also the Argus has radial piston engines.
