Relative Size Comparison
NOTES: Shapes below depict aircraft from wingtip-to-wingtip / nose-to-tail assuming aircraft are being viewed from overhead perspective (the nose pointing towards the top of your screen). Helicopter widths include main rotor diameter. If any dimensional values are "NA" in our database then the presented shapes will appear skewed.
