Types Of Aircrafts

a type of aeroplane having two sets of wings, one above the other

a military aircraft designed to carry out bombing missions

an aircraft in which the tailplane is mounted in front of the wing

an aircraft that has an annular wing with the fuselage and engine on the centre line convertiplane, convertaplane, or convertoplanean aircraft that can land and take off vertically by temporarily directing its propulsive thrust downwards

an aircraft lifted and propelled by pivoted blades rotating parallel to roughly horizontal transverse axes

an aircraft with a a triangular sweptback wing

Dive bomber
a military aircraft designed to release its bombs on a target during a steep dive

a pilotless radio-controlled aircraft

no data

an armed aircraft designed for destroying other aircraft

a high-performance aircraft that combines the roles of fighter and bomber

an aircraft designed for transporting cargo

an aircraft capable of gliding and soaring in air currents without the use of an engine gyrodynean aircraft that uses a powered rotor to take off and manoeuvre, but uses autorotation when cruising

an unpowered aircraft consisting of a large cloth wing stretched over a light framework from which the pilot hangs in a harness, using a horizontal bar to control the flight

an aircraft capable of hover, vertical flight, and horizontal flight in any direction. Most get all of their lift and propulsion from the rotation of overhead blades

Helicopter gunship
a large heavily armed helicopter used for ground attack

Interceptor or intercepter
a fast highly manoeuvrable fighter aircraft used to intercept enemy aircraft jet or jet plane.

Jumbo jet
a type of large jet-propelled airliner that carries several hundred passengers

Jump jet
a fixed-wing jet aircraft that is capable of landing and taking off vertically

Did You Know?

The Lockheed SR-71 "Blackbird" is the FASTEST AIRCRAFT and a long-range, high-altitude, Mach 3+ strategic reconnaissance aircraft that was operated by the United States Air Force. It was developed as a black project from the Lockheed A-12 reconnaissance aircraft in the 1960s by Lockheed and its Skunk Works division. American aerospace engineer Clarence "Kelly" Johnson was responsible for many of the design's innovative concepts. During aerial reconnaissance missions, the SR-71 operated at high speeds and altitudes to allow it to outrace threats. If a surface-to-air missile launch were detected, the standard evasive action was simply to accelerate and outfly the missile. The shape of the SR-71 was based on the A-12 which was one of the first aircraft to be designed with a reduced radar cross-section. The SR-71 served with the U.S. Air Force from 1964 to 1998. A total of 32 aircraft were built; 12 were lost in accidents with none lost to enemy action. The SR-71 has been given several nicknames, including "Blackbird" and "Habu".[6] Since 1976, it has held the world record for the fastest air-breathing manned aircraft, a record previously held by the related Lockheed YF-12.

The Antonov An-225 Mriya (Ukrainian: Антонов Ан-225 Мрія, lit. 'dream' or 'inspiration', NATO reporting name: "Cossack") is the LARGEST AIRCRAFT in the world and a strategic airlift cargo aircraft that was designed by the Antonov Design Bureau in the Ukrainian SSR within the Soviet Union during the 1980s. It is powered by six turbofan engines and is the heaviest aircraft ever built, with a maximum takeoff weight of 640 tonnes (710 short tons; 630 long tons). It also has the largest wingspan of any aircraft in operational service. The single example built has the Ukrainian civil registration UR-82060. A second airframe with a slightly different configuration[1] was partially built. Its construction was halted in 1994[1] because of lack of funding and interest, but revived briefly in 2009, bringing it to 60–70% completion. On 30 August 2016, Antonov agreed to complete the second airframe for Aerospace Industry Corporation of China (not to be confused with the Aviation Industry Corporation of China) as a prelude to AICC commencing series production. The Antonov An-225, initially developed for the task of transporting the Buran spaceplane, was an enlargement of the successful Antonov An-124. The first and only An-225 was completed in 1988. After successfully fulfilling its Soviet military missions, it was mothballed for eight years. It was then refurbished and re-introduced, and is in commercial operation with Antonov Airlines carrying oversized payloads.[4] The airlifter holds the absolute world records for an airlifted single-item payload of 189,980 kilograms (418,830 pounds), and an airlifted total payload of 253,820 kg (559,580 lb).It has also transported a payload of 247,000 kg (545,000 lb) on a commercial flight.
