Aircraft Identification Site?

Thu Feb 26, 2004 3:51 am

Are there any good sites (for a newbie like me) on the subject of aircraft identification. I'm always impressed by some people who see a picture of a landing gear and immediately know that it's a A340-200 or something like that. I don't even know how to separate a B737-400 from a B737-800.
