Selection of five commercial airplane pictures, five United States military airplane pictures, each picture is accompanied with summary description.
|Commercial Airplane Photos/Pictures
The Airbus A340 is a long-range widebody commercial passenger airplane manufactured by Airbus Industrie. It is similar in design to the sister, the A330 but uses four engines rather than two (as in the airplane pictures). It has one of the longest ranges of any commercial airliner.
The Boeing 747, also popularly known as the jumbo jet, is the second largest passenger airliner after Airbus A380, but it remains the largest aircraft in commercial service (see airplane pictures). The four-engine 747, produced by Boeing Commercial Airplanes, combines passenger-carrying capacities of up to 550 people with its unique two-deck configuration (the small upper deck is usually used for business-class passengers).
McDonnell Douglas DC-10
The McDonnell Douglas DC-10 is a three-engined long-range airliner (see airplane pictures), with two engines mounted on underwing pylons and a third engine at the base of the vertical stabilizer.
Handley Page Jetstream
The Handley Page HP.137 Jetstream was a small twin turboprop airliner, with a pressurised fuselage, designed to meet the requirements of the United States feederliner and regional airline market(see airplane pictures).
The Fokker F100 is a small twin-engine regional jet airliner and feederliner from the Fokker company (see airplane pictures). Low operational costs and almost no modern competition in the 100-seat short-range class made it a best seller when it was introduced in the late 1980s, but improved models of the Boeing 737 and Airbus A319 and 318 squeezed it into a niche and Fokker was soon insolvent. Production ended in 1997 with 283 airframes delivered.
|U.S. Military Airplane Pictures
A selection of U.S. military aircraft, with pictures and summmary description.
B-2 Spirit Bomber
The B-2 Spirit, sometimes known as the B-2 Bomber, is an American multi-role stealth bomber capable of delivering both conventional and nuclear weapons (see airplane pictures). A dramatic leap forward in technology, the bomber represented a major milestone in the U.S. bomber modernization program.
Boeing B-29 Superfortress
The Boeing B-29 Superfortress was an American four-engine heavy bomber, and one of the largest aircraft of World War II to see active service (see airplane pictures). It was the primary US strike weapon against Japan and continued to serve long after the war was over.
The F-15 Eagle is an all-weather, extremely maneuverable, tactical fighter designed to permit the U.S. Air Force to gain and maintain air superiority in aerial combat (see airplane pictures).
As of 2000, the F-15 in all air forces has a combined kill record of 104 kills to zero losses in air combat. The F-15E sustained two losses to ground fire in the Persian Gulf War of 1991 with no airplane pictures evidence.
The Boeing KC-135 Stratotanker's is an aerial refueling tanker aircraft (see airplane pictures), first manufactured in 1956 and expected to remain in service into the 2020s.
A-10/OA-10 Thunderbolt II
The A-10/OA-10 Thunderbolt II, often known as the "Warthog," is the first US Air Force aircraft specially designed for close air support of ground forces. This simple, effective and survivable twin-engine jet aircraft can be used against all ground targets, including tanks and other armored vehicles. The airplane pictures shows teh armnament.
