Aircraft “3-View” and “Silhouette” Drawings
Aircraft Recognition Drawings


This section is currently under construction and will eventually contain hundreds of “3-View” and “Silhouette” drawings of aircraft. The drawings will span the time frame from the Wright Brothers to the present. “Silhouette” drawings were used extensively during World War II up to the present use of government issued “Recognition Study Cards.” The drawings were mainly used on “Aircraft Spotter Cards” playing cards, “Flash” cards, “Wall charts” and ”Aircraft Spotter' Guide” booklets to help train pilots, crews, and Ground Observers to recognize "Friend or Foe" aircraft. Samples of “Silhouette” and “Line” 3-view drawings are shown below.
