Identify by airplane 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. 

Aviatik D.I

The World War I fighter Aviatik D.I has an inline piston engine with the pistons on the top and driving axis at the bottom. It is cooled by a frontal radiator that is not symmetric when viewed from the front. It has a gun sight on top. The wings have non-rounded tips.

AVIC Leadair AG300

The Leadair AG300 is a Chinese spring off of the Epic LT. Naturally, both are very similar. Luckily the AG300 has only three cabin windows while the Epic has four. So after all there is one obvious difference. (photo Xu Zheng/WikiMedia)

Avro 652 Anson

Two characteristics of the Avro Anson help in identifying the aircraft: the wing-shaped fuselage (flat at the bottom, round at the top, when viewed from the side) and the relatively large cabin windows with race track shape. It has a retractable main landing gear.

Avro 698 Vulcan

As one of the largest delta wing aircraft ever built, the Avro Vulcan is easy to recognise, especially when seen from above. The four jet engines are placed in the wing roots, with the air intakes in the leading edge of the ogival delta wings. The bomber has a canopy type cockpit.

The Avro (later Hawker-Siddeley and British Aerospace) 748 is characterised by large oval cabin windows, a blunt nose, a cockpit with small, narrow eyebrow windows and rounded engine nacelles. 

Avro Avian

The Avian comes with different engines and tail; here a radial engine and triangular tail of the Avro 616 are shown. But all have in common double wings of the same span with hardly any stagger. All wing struts are therefore (nearly) vertical.

Avro Lancaster

One of the most famous bombers of the World War II has streamlined, in-line piston engines under the wings, a single wheel main landing gear and a double tail with long oval vertical stabilisers pointing up from the tips of the horizontal stabilisers.

Avro-Canada C102 Jetliner

The Avro-Canada C102 was the first jet airliner to fly after the Comet. It has a cruciform, nearly rectanglar tail with curved dorsal fin, engines in long paired, but separated nacelles under the wings, and a nicely streamlined nose. (photo: WikiMedia)

Avro-Canada CF-100 Canuck

The first Canadian jet fighter can be recognised by its straight wings, large engine nacelles at the side of the fuselage with conical bodies in the inlet. Also, it has a cruciform, straight tail.

The canard configuration is already a typical feature of the Avtek 400, but the canard being placed on top of the cockpit makes this bizprop with pusher propellers a unique aircraft. (photo: Peter Davis)
