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 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, including the long main landing gear legs attached to the wings.

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)

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. 

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 and low T-tail without dorsal fin.

Canadair CL-84 Dynavert

The wings of this aircraft can be tilted 90 degrees, so that the propellers become rotors, providing lift. It also has a tail rotor. Other features are a three fin tail, of which the middle one is taller than the others. The two wheel gears are retractable.

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.

The Canadair Regional Jet series are essentially a stretched version of the Challenger 600 series. Later versions are more similar in appearance to the Global series, but have engine nacelles with a separate fan exhaust.

The CASA Aviojet has long, oval shaped air intakes in front of the wings. Also characteristic is the exhaust before the end of the fuselage, below the horizontal stabiliser.
