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. 

The Global series of large cabin business jets built by Bombardier are clearly a derivative of the Challenger series and Regional Jet series 100/200. This is especially visible when looking are the front of the fuselage as the cockpit windows and cabin windows are the same. However, the Globals have a different tail and engines with a single exhaust.

Boom Supersonic XB-1

The XB-1 acts as demonstrator for a supersonic airliner. It has delta wings, a triangular tail and three engines. Two engines are under the wings, next to the fuselage, and one is in the rear fuselage. All air intakes have a wedge shape and the inlet of the middle engine is on top of the fuselage, in front of the tail. (photo Boom Supersonic)

Breguet Br1150 Atlantic

This purpose-built maratime patrol aircraft is easily recognisable by its double-bouble fuselage, meaning an eight-shaped fuselage cross section. Other characteristics are the glass nose, MAD antenna extending from the tail cone and long, slender engine nacelles.

Bristol 170 Freighter

Designed specifically to transport cars across the Channel, the Bristol 170 Freighter has clamshell doors in the nose to facilitate loading. The cockpit is above the cargo bay, giving it a rather fat appearance at the front. This makes for an easily recognisable prop aircraft with a fixed, tail-wheel landing gear.

Bristol 175 Britannia

The Britannia four engined turboprop has big nacelles with ring shaped intakes, four wheels on the main gears, a pointed nose with many cockpit windows and oval cabin windows.

The Jetstream has a relatively wide, short fuselage though, with a circular cross section, oval cabin windows, seven flat cock­pit win­dows and a pointed nose. The main gear has single wheels and retracts inward in the wings, while the nose gear has two wheels.

The British Aerospace 146 is a four engined medium size jet airliner, of which most versions are passenger aircraft with cabin windows. That latter makes it stand out compared to similar sized transport aircraft. The BAe146 also have a two wheel main landing gear retracting sideways, and a speed brake in the tail cone.

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, long D-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.
