Military Aircrafts

Sun Oct 08, 2017 12:31 pm

Hello everybody!
Maybe I'm wrong but, as today it's the first time I see five military aircrafts on "TOP 5 OF THE LAST 24 HOURS", I'm asking to myself whether AIRLINERS.NET has a meaning or not... I maybe wrong due to my poor english knowledge but I always thought the word "airliner" was referred to civil (passengers) planes...
Is anybody so kind to give me an explication?
Thanks my friends and always fly high!

While the site is called airliners.net, it has always welcomed all types of aircraft - airliners, military, helicopter, light aircraft, space craft. They are all welcome here.

We even have balloons :)
Personally I am an airliner guy, but enjoy a pointy plane every now and then. The top 5 represents what you, our visitors, find most interresting right now.

Right now we have 4 airliners and just one military plane in the top 5

Thanks everyone who has spent his time to give me an answer... I did not blame the fact there are military aircraft or even else on the site. It was only a "semantic" curiosity...!
Thanks again!
