95% to 100% - but it really all depends on the pictures you get. I don't mean that some aircraft types are difficult....more that the pictures seclected are random, and there are some the uiz throws up where it is genuinely impossible to tell what you're dealing with!

Can't think of any examples right now, but things like shots of wheel-bays etc...

Usually get 100% if identifiable pictures come up! Still get a little confused with some of the 737 variants and CRJ's...

I ususally get 85%-100%, but it depends on the quiz. Some pics are given away in the actual pic (ex. it says "Airbus A320-200" on the aircraft), but others are impossible, like telling a 737-300 from a 737-700 given only the nose view of the aircraft and hardly and of the wings shown. I don't really play them anymore.

I've averaged in the 95%. Not too shabby. But I find some errors in the possible answers . . . specific examples escape me, however - given two choices for a type of aircraft, such as RJ-85 being one and Aerospatiele RJ-85. Pick one and it will be the other - I guess I'm too much of a rookie to know the difference. And as FriendlySkies says, be sure to look at the pics - lots of them give away the answers with A/C type painted on the fuselage! Very convenient  Smile.

I usually do the Airliners quiz (100 questions) only. I average around 87%-98%, depending on the difficulty of that particular moment's quiz.

I have trouble distinguishing A32X variants and 737 variants--they look so similar! Because they throw in the odd military or GA or bizjet type, I have difficulty with those as well (and besides, I don't pay much attention to those kinds either). Why do they toss in GA, military, and business types with the airliners (when it's obviously an Airliners quiz)?

I really enjoy the Airliners quiz, because it sharpens my sense of visual detail and my observational skills!
