Title: Differences between 737/320/757/767/330
Post by: chess on June 18, 2009, 01:57:37 am
This is in response to a request in another thread ;)

The 737 family has one wheel per landing gear and distinctive nose and tail:

The A320 family also has one wheel per landing gear with 'lower' nose than 737:

The 757 has two wheels per landing gear, the wheels lie parallel with the ground, the fuselage is long and thin:

The 767 has two wheels per landing gear, the wheels 'lean forward':

The A330 has two wheels per landing gear, the wheels 'lean back' like an A340:

Once you know which is which, it becomes second nature and you stop looking at the wheels and just recognise the fuselage shape.

Hope that helps :)
