Nice quiz. You should put some different airports in the options for some of the answers though - if the options are the really famous ones (SXM, Kai Tak, St Barts etc) but the picture isn't one of those, it's obvious which one the answer is.

Nice quizzes! The first one sure helped me learn about/recognize different airport approaches! For me, the hardest part was identifying the differences between the Boeing 727-200 and the Tupelov TU-154M since I am unfamiliar with Tupelov aircraft.
Quoting Fabo (Reply 2): You give options ERJ-170 and EMB-135, which is, obviously, wrong.
That is true, but airliners.net list one aircraft as ERJ-170 instead of E170 (http://www.airliners.net/aircraft-data/stats.main?id=406).
jaylink, for future reference, the correct designations for the Embraer series are EMB120, ERJ-135/140/145, and E-170/175/190/185. The E-170/175/190/195 series is considered a "hybrid" between the traditional RJ and the mainline fleet (primarily because of the number of passengers the aircraft can carry but also because they look more like some mainline aircraft- think mini 737), which is why I think the series doesn't use the ERJ designation. Keep in mind that some airlines, such as US and AC use the E-190/195 as part of their mainline fleet. The upcoming Bombardier C-Series is also a "hybrid" RJ. Overall though I love the quizzes!
