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. 

Antonov An-72/74

The jet engines of the Antonov An-72 and An-74 are placed on top of and before the wings to create more lift. This makes the configuration unique and easy to recognise. Further note the tandem main landing gear and significant anhedral of the wings.

Atlas Cheetah

Hampered by sanctions South Africa created its own advanced fighter by significantly upgrading the Mirage III the air force had. As such the Atlas Cheetah looks much like a Mirage, but with a longer nose and canards behind the air intakes.

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. It has a retractable main landing gear and a tail-wheel configuration.

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-Canada CF-100 Canuck

The first Canadian jet fighter can be recognised by its straight wings, large engine nacelles in the wings roots, against the fuselage, and the cruciform, straight tail.

Noticable on this aircraft are the relatively short landing gear, low vertical stabiliser with bullet fairing on top, a wide fuselage (giving it a "fatty" appearance) and a pointy nose. Is comparable in size to the DC-9-10 to DC-9-30 series.

Beechcraft 18

The basic Beechcraft model 18 has two radial engines mounted in the wings, a tail wheel undercarriage and and H-tail. This makes it similar two the Lockheed 10, Lockheed 12 and Barkley-Grow T8P-1. The cockpit windows are the best way to keep them apart. The Beechcraft Model 18 comes however in many different versions, of which some can even hardly be recognisable from the original model. Some conversions have a single vertical stabiliser, while others have turbine engines and/or an undercarriage with a nose wheel.

The Beech 1900 commuter aircraft shares many components with the Super King Air series. Essentially it is a stretched Beech 200 with a higher cabin and further spaced cabin windows.

Beechcraft 2000 Starship

The Starship is a twin turboprop aircraft with pusher props in canard configuration. It has no single vertical stabiliser, but two vertical surfaces at the wingtips acting as vertical stabilisers. This distinguishes the aircraft the most from the Piaggio Avanti.
