Some menu selections include a generic aircraft model, as well as more specific variants of that airliner.
These variants are denoted by a - before the aircraft name.
Selecting 'Boeing 747,' for example, will show results featuring all Boeing 747 jetliners in our database, while selecting '- Boeing 747-200' will show all Boeing 747-200 variants in our database (Boeing 747-200, Boeing 747-212B, Boeing 747-283F, etc.)

Note: A big radial biplane, tall wild grass and a watchful mechanic in an antiquated working suit - the shot could have easily passed for a 1930s scene... aircraft mfd. in 1980, previously registrered HA-MAC
Note: New reg for Croatia. Despite its similarity to the Sukhoi Su-29, the Interavia I-3 (also known in Russia as the Technoavia SP-91) is a different design, produced by the same man who produced the Sukhoi aerobatic series. This particular...
Note: Going nowhere on a damp and foggy morning. This aircraft is the oldest Skyhawk model around here, and is fitted with an extended range 18 US gal tank in the baggage compartment, giving it an edurance of almost 7 hours.
Note: Took a lot of hopping around in the tall grass to get this one (and its big big rotor) in a full frame. This derelict helicopter, presumably ex-Aeroflot, has been lying here for a few years now, slowly being picked of its parts to the...
Note: Taxiing back to the apron after droping some parajumpers at the start of the 39. Fizir Kup precision landing championship and 80th anniversary of Aeroklub Zagreb. Though it looks nice on this side, it's a bit battered on the other.
Note: First of the two helicopters owned by HIKO, one of the entrants in the international competition for the first Croatian civil SAR service. Unlike her sister ship 9A-HKB, this one is in full EMS configuration, including a winch and...
Note: The oldest helicopter operated by the police (mfd. 1972), and the only one wearing the aquamarine c/s instead of the standard dark blue. Usually it's tucked away in the hangar, but today it flew several training sorties - seen here taking...
Note: Second of the two helicopters owned by HIKO, one of the entrants in the international competition for the first Croatian civil SAR service. It had no identity plate so I couldn't find out any details about it. Further away in the...
Note: Though wearing an N number, this Tractor is stationed in Croatia throughout the year. Note the water-bombing gear under the fuselage (the blue pod). Tractors like this one, and in pretty much the same colours, are operated by the Air Force...
Note: The reg says it all: Luftbalon Zeppelin Friedricshafen. Constructed by Von Zeppelin's grandson, it came here as part of an advertising campaign for the new BMW 1 Series. Sporting four 200-HP Lycoming IO-360 engines driving tilting prop...
