Growing up I flew a lot out of Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA). I would head over to the North or South Terminals and watch planes come and go for hours. I would love looking at two different aircraft and find the differences so I could tell them apart. Some, like the Boeing 727 and Boeing 737 were easy. Others like the DC-10 and MD-11 took a little more effort. With magazines and the addition of the internet, learning the differences became easier.
For those who might not have every aircraft type down, but want to know them better, I found a pretty slick guide on how to know your Airbus and Boeing airplanes from each other.
Check it out. What are some other ways you use to tell aircraft apart?Image: MSPdude
