AASI Jetcruzer

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.

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.

Aermacchi MB339

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 intake. To distinguish both aircraft look at the canopy: the one of the MB339 is larger and the aft seat is higher than on the MB326.

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.

Aero Vodochody Ae270

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 winglets.

The Corvette is a French type of bizjet, that could be mistaken for a Falcon 10 or a Falcon 20. There is nothing in particular that differentiate both, except the cockpit windows and tip tanks. The latter are optional on the Corvette, but not present on the Falcon 10/20.

The ATR42 and longer ATR72 can especially be recognised by the short landing gear, large vertical stabiliser, with two bents in the curved leading edge, and the pointy tail cone. The latter is also a characteristic of the Dornier 328, with which the ATR42 can be confused. 

Aérospatiale/BAC Concorde

Just two supersonic transport aircraft actually flew, of which the Concorde was the most famous. Compared to its Russian counterpart the Concorde has more clearly ogival delta wings, while the wings of the Tupolev 144 have more a double delta shape. Also the Tu-144 has retractable canard wings below the cockpit. For the rest the Concorde and “Concordski” are very similar in appearance.
