AirportMonitor Aircraft Idetification

Sat Nov 16, 2002 3:01 am

I use the following Airport Monitor for La Guardia airport:

http://www4.passur.com/lga.html

When you click on the planes, it tells you what kind of plane it is, but there are some codes for the planes that I dont know what they are, like:

E135
SF34
M20T
General Aviation
BE30

Can anyone give me ideas what what planes these might be?

Also, often these things give plane types for aircraft that are certainly helicopters, judging by their activities. I doubt that was truly a 757 doing circles over Randalls Island at 800 feet for an hour.

GALX = IAI 1126 Galaxy
BE30 = Raytheon Beech 300 Super King Air

BTW Usually airliners are identified by their three digit ICAO code (for example 744 = 747-400, 100 = Fokker 100 etc.) and bizjets and props with their four digit ICAO code (GALX = IAI 1126 Galaxy, GLEX = Global express)
