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. 

This tiltrotor was a research aircraft for what would later become the V-22 Osprey. The XV-15 has large diameter rotors at the wingtips, that act as propellers when the whole nacelles are tilted forward. All gears are retractable have double wheels. Finally, the vertical fins have a significant sweep.

The Osprey tiltrotor aircraft has large diameter rotors at the wingtips, that act as propellers when the whole nacelles are tilted forward. All retractable gears have double wheels. The rear fuselage slopes up to allow (un)loading via a rear ramp. The vertical fins have non-swept trailing edges.

Bellanca CH-200/CH-300/CH-400

This Bellanca aircraft has a square fuselage cross section, with flat panel windows. It is powered by a radial piston engine. Typical are the two wings struts on each side, with their long chord, at least the lower three quarts.

Beriev A40 Albatross

The Beriev A40 Albatross amphibian aircraft has an unusual configuration with jet engines on top of and behind the high wings. It has a long nose, stabilising floats near the wing tips, a bullet fairing on top of the vertical stabiliser and a main landing gear with four wheels. (photo: Mike Freer/WikiMedia)

Beriev Be-200

After the failure of the Beriev A40 the company made a smaller version, designated Be-200. It has a short nose, engines with separate fan exhaust, no bullet fairing at the top of the tail and two wheel main landing gears.

Beriev Be-30 & Be-32

This turboprop commuter aircraft has cockpit windows like the L-410 and rectangular cabin windows. Like on many Antonovs the wings have a slight anhedral. The single wheel main gears are retracted rearward in the long nacelles.

Beriev Be-6 & Be-12

Unlike many similar amphibian aircraft the Be-6/Be-12 has a tail gear, of which the main gear retracts in the side of the fuselage. Typical are the gull wings, H-tail with significant dihedral on the horizontal stabilisers and glass nose.  

Blériot XI

Like many of its contempories the Blériot XI has a largely open frame fuselage with square cross section. The wings are curved, flat surfaces without ailerons or other flaps. They are braced by wires. The aircraft has no vertical fin, just a large rudder at the end of the fuselage.

The main characteristics of this twin vertical tail, twin engine fighter are the cropped delta shaped wings, wedge shaped air intakes at the side of the fuselage and bubble canopy. Distinctive compared to similar aircraft are the tops of the vertical stabilisers, with a sort of antennas pointing forward.

The outward tilted double vertical stabilisers of the Hornet are placed relatively far forward on the top fuselage, with long tail pipes extending beyond. Another distinctive feature are the leading edge root extentions of the wings, along the fuselage all the way up to the cockpit. The aircraft shows a large resemblance with the Northrop YF-17 Cobra, from which it was developed.
