If you are looking for photos of a specific aircraft type, use this menu. Please note that, due to space constraints, this menu includes only some of the more requested aircraft in our database.
If the aircraft you're searching for is not in this list, use the 'Keywords' field further down in the search menus.
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: Conair's latest baby is this 2010 built Dash-8-Q400 air tanker that they got from Angola last year. With Flybe, a major operator of the type, going bust there should be plenty more air-frames going cheap if this one works out. What I find...
Note: Typical! The first wet day since January and we get an unusual (for this airport) airliner movement. This CRJ-100 originally flew with Air Canada mainline in 1996, then was transferred to Jazz Air in 2005. By 2013 it was with Air Georgian...
Note: Brand new and less than a month in service is this stretched version of the BAC One-Eleven. In 1975 it was sold in Argentina and scrapped there in 1993. The aircraft behind is DeHav Comet 4 G-APDN which, just over a year later, tragically...
Note: These TIA stretch DC-8s were often seen in the UK, so catching this making a tech stop at Winnipeg gave me, a new immigrant, a twinge of nostalgia. Stripe and tail were painted turquoise. This one was built in 1968 and ended its days with...
Note: Originally built for US based Western Airlines in 1953, this Douglas DC-6B later went to west Africa where it ended its days. In the background are (L) one of British United's Bristol Britannia turboprops and (R) an ex-Alitalia DC-6B.
Note: Arriving after a long haul from Peru is this APSA operated Douglas DC-8-52. Delivered new to Iberia of Spain in 1961, it later saw service with Nordair in 1979 as C-GNDF and was scrapped at Miami in 1993. The aircraft in the background are...
Note: Originally built for Northwest Airlines in 1957, this Douglas DC-7C is here on ops for Temple Airlines on a North Atlantic charter. Bearing in mind today's fast, quiet and smooth travel, spare a thought for those folks boarding the plane...
Note: Transair engineers developed the gravel runway kit as indicated by the modified nose gear and deflector tubes on the engine intakes of this Boeing 737. Only two months old when snapped here, 'TAN changed hands several times, ending up in...
Note: Wardair's first Boeing 707 shares the ramp with another example operated by Caledonian Airways. Far left is the tail of Wardair's one and only Boeing727, CF-FUN which flew UK charters from Canada via Iceland. CF-FAN changed hands several...
Note: The second Boeing 737 operated by Canadian Pacific Airlines, which had been rebranded as CP Air. Delivered in Nov/68, this ship was sold to US based no-frills airline People Express in 1982 and scrapped in 1999.
Note: Originally built for Northwest Airlines in 1957, this Douglas DC-7C was imported into Canada by Nordair of Montreal in 1964 and shown here on a Pacific Western charter. In the background are (L) BAC One-Eleven and (R) Vickers VC10 jets.
