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. 

This single engine turboprop aircraft is easy to recognise: it has a canard configuration with a pusher prop at the end of the fuselage. Also it has one small vertical stabiliser pointing downwards, and two upwards at the wingtips.

Is very easily recognised from every other bizjet type by its twin tail booms. These are unique for a bizjet. It was one of the first very light jets on the market, but due to financing problems only a couple have been.

Intended for the same market as the Cessna Caravan, Quest Kodiak and GippsAero Airvan the Explorer series has a similar appearance. Its main recognition points are the retractable gear and the tall vertical stabiliser with small dorsal fin.

These two aircraft are two generations of the same aircraft, that started as Aeritalia G222. It has the same configuration and size as the CN235/C295, but has a wider fuselage and different cockpit windows. Moreover it has much less cabin windows! 

Aermacchi MB326

Straight wings with tip tanks and small, round air intakes in the wing roots characterise this jet training aircraft. It furthermore has a tandem cockpit, except for the single seat variants. The MB326 was built under license in South Africa and Brazil. The MB339 is a separately described, modernised version, which can especially be recognised by the cockpit: the back seat is higher than the front seat.

The small, nearly round air intakes in the wing roots are the main characteristic of this jet trainer aircraft. It resembles its predecessor however, the MB326, which has the same type of air intakes. To distinguish both aircraft look at the canopy: the one of the MB339 is larger and the rear seat is higher than the front seat.

Aero L-29 Delfin

The Delfin jet trainer has small D shaped air intakes in the wing roots and a low T tail, which gives it a similar appearance as the MS760 Paris but then with a single engine. The exhaust is at the end of the fuselage.

Aero L-39 Albatros

The best way to recognise this jet training aircraft is by its air intakes: they have the shape of half circles, which are placed at the side of the fuselage, just after the cockpit. There is some room between the air channel and the wings.

The Ae270, developed by Aero Vodochody in cooperation with AIDC (from Taiwan), is a low wing aircraft with a regular tailplane. It looks a bit like a stretched TBM-700 with six cockpit windows and an air intake in the dorsal fin.

Aerospace Lines Pregnant/Super Guppy

To transport outsize cargo several Boeing Stratocruiser were converted with a much larger diameter fuselage. These are known as Pregnant Guppy or Super Guppy. Often also the piston engines were replaced by turboprop engines. But the Stratocruiser heritage is still visible, especially in the nose.
