Britten-Norman BN-2 Islander

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.

Canadair CL-215/CL-415

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. 

Canadair CL-41 Tutor

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 T-tail.

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. Als 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.

CASA C-207 Azor

Spanish transport aircraft eithout very specific features to recognise it, or it could be the DC-4 like nose gear, including doors. Just look at the details of cockpit/cabin windows, nacelles and tail to distinguish it from similar aircraft like the Martin 202/404 and Convair propliners. 

CASA C-212 Aviocar

The Aviocar has a fuselage with a nearly square cross section featuring round cabin windows. The rear fuselage is sloped up to allow easy loading. The vertical stabiliser appears to be tilted forward, as the forward sweep of the trailing edge is larger than the sweep angle of the leading edge. Finally, the C212 has a fixed undercarriage with all single wheels. 

The primary market for the CN235 and longer C295 is military transport, which is why the aircraft have an upswept rear fuselage, to facilitate loading and unloading. Also characteristic are the two wheels of the main landing gear in tandem configuration, retracting in pod attached to the fuselage.
