Quoting HaveBlue (Reply 49):
Are those not the same airframes? Differing in name only like the P-3 and Aurora that someone else posted earlier?

As far as I know, the Fairchild F-27 and Fokker F-27 are the same, but the Fairchild FH-227 is a stretched version. So really, 2 different airplanes, I guess.

No, the The Fairchild F-27 is the American License built version of the Fokker F.27.

The FH-227 was simply Fairchild's stretch, originally named the F-27II. However, with the merger of Fairchild and Hiller and because Bob Peach of Mohawk Airlines wanted a name on the plane that would be new, they decided to rename it the FH-227. Fokker's version of the FH-227 would be in the shape of the stretched Fokker F.27-500 which is actually about a foot shorter that the FH-227.

The Fairchild aircraft were built on the American measurement standards, whilst the Fokkers were built in Metric.
Parts from either airplane CANNOT be interchanged.
The only items that can be interchanged are the landing gear.

These three airplanes are ALWAYS confused or lumped in as the same type which is why I posted them. To the casual spotter, they are identical....I did this in the TAT colours because TAT flew all three types.....

The P-3 Orion and the CP-140 Aurora are the same airframe. The only difference is the submarine detection equipment. The CP-140 uses the S-3A equipment in place of the P-3's.


Yes, that is why I put them side-by-side, calling them sub-counterparts.
Much like the IL20, and IL36 in the same message .... same airframe, different mission.

While not obvious I see now, I was comparing the P-3 / CP-140 with the IL-20 / IL-36.
Just because I stopped arguing, doesn't mean I think you are right. It just means I gave up!

This thread was named Lookielikies....

The planes are supposed to look alike, am I correct?

One could list a picture of the basic DC3 and the Russian built Li-2...those certainly qualify as look alikes.

What a cool idea for a thread. Here are a couple unrelated twins:
Piper Tomahawk and Beechcraft Skipper.

They are related - the same guy was the head of preliminary design on both. I used to work for him...

What do you get when you mate an F-16 with an F-18?
...an AIDC FCK-1!

The F-16 and FCK-1 look alike, as GD helped AIDC design the FCK-1. Plus, GD/Lockheed helped KAI develop the T-50:

Isn't the Li-2 a license built clone of the DC-3?

On the military front, there are the Sepecat Jaguar and the Mitsubishi T-2/F-1. They are even powered by the same engines:

And, a mixed civil/military set: the Bristol Britannia, Canadair CL-44 and Canadair CL-28 Argus. The Britannia was powered by Bristol Proteus turboprops, while th CL-44 is powered by RR Tynes. The CL-28 was a modified CL-44 powered by Wright R-3350s, making it a rare example of a airframe where piston engines replaced turboprops. One should also note that the Short Belfast shared a common wing with the Britannia.

Yes, plus Showa and Nakajima license-built copies in Japan as the L2D.

Ever notice how much the Basler BT-67 Turbo-67 and AMI DC-3-65TP Turbo look alike? The same company engineered both modifications.

My very first post, and I think it memorable to quote to this thread.

Slightly off topic, but I flew in the Denel Rooivalk on Monday! On of the best flights of my life!

Back to topic...

Concorde and its Russian counterpart seems quite an obvious example.
