Aircraft Descriptions on Internet?

Mon Dec 28, 1998 11:28 am

Am searching for a site that will give me information on commerical aircraft (including prop planes, like business express).

When I am checking airline travel, would like to look up the aircraft specified for flights and learn about the passenger capacity, diagram of the cabin layout, etc.

www.airliner.net comes close with some airline information being constructed on this site about aircraft (such as capacity and historical info). Also has excellent photos.

Only want to access this information over the Internet. Free, of course.

Thanks for your help.

I can't think of the URL for the site right now but there is one that I can think of that has a quick and dirty introduction to aircraft. I have a link for it at http://www.aero.und.edu/~shmiller/plane_spotting.html. If I didn't type in that address correctly just drop the last part of that address and click to go to the planespotting page. I hope this helps. One on these days if I get the time I may actually put in my own discription of all these aircraft.

One think that you may want to keep in mind is that every airline has a slightly different seating arrangement. So if you find out a plane has a capacity of 180 seats one carrier might have the full 180 another may only pack in 174 and so on.

good luck if you have any questions maybe I can help.

OPS... I FORGOT

you can also check out Boeing site www.boeing.com or Airbuses site www.airbus.com. I also have placed a bunch of manufactures links on the site I gave you earlier on the links page./spottydoglinks.htm

I apologize to everybody who may think that I am shamelessly promoting my site contrary to the rules. But it is just easier to guide him there then to look up all of the URL's for Boeing, Airbus, Bomadier Ect. Ect. Ect.
