BY DECADE
Your selected aircraft are compared in side-by-side arrangement below. You can always go back and Compare any two aircraft in our database.

Notes: Some entries contain '0', 'not available', or an 'NA' value. This is more common with conceptual, experimental, and x-plane designs. Rotary-wing system (i.e. helicopters) values include main rotor diameter as part of width/wingspan measurement. UAV entries may display crew values as '0', not taking into account ground-based controllers.
