  Aircraft - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Fixed-wing aircraft generally use an internal-combustion engine in the form of a piston engine (with a propeller) or a turbine engine (jet or turboprop), to provide thrust that moves the craft forward through the air.
The major distinction in aircraft usage is between military aviation, which includes all uses of airplane for military purposes (such as combat, patrolling, search and rescue, reconnaissance, transport, and training), and civil aviation, which includes all uses of airplanes for non-military purposes.
Combat aircraft themselves, though used a handful of times for reconnaissance and surveillance during the Italo-Turkish War, did not come into widespread use until the Balkan War when first air-dropped bomb was invented and widely used by Bulgarian air force against Turkey.

 Davis-Monthan AFB and the Military Aircraft Boneyard   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Most aircraft transferred to this facility are "cannibalized" (stripped for spare parts) and eventually scrapped, but some of the transport aircraft such as the older C-130s are made available to other federal agencies for nonmilitary purposes such as firefighting.
These aircraft were scrapped in accordance with the START arms limitation treaty, being subjected to a giant guillotine that effectively cut the fuselage and control cables, rendering the airframe unusable.
These utility aircraft were also used by the Navy and Air Force for a variety of roles, including reconnaisance, search and rescue, and military transports (thanks again to Steve Weigelt and Craig Busack for the identification assist).

A number of American transport and utility aircraft were loaned to the RCAF and the RCN during the construction of the DEW Line in the 1950s.

 Those Bothersome Military Aircraft
Police helicopters, traffic choppers, private aircraft, yes I have seen (up close) quite a few, but military, no. The police and traffic helos fly low and loud, back and forth, and hey, they even bother me (who lived across from National Airport for three years).
Thankfully several retired military folk in the area sent a reply to the local newspaper editor- which is where the original complaint was sent- basically outlining what I have said.
Unfortunately they did not add the fact that even if these bothersome aircraft were military, those who were bothered should consider why these aircraft are actually in the air.

These aircraft where observed in the south west US and are said to have been developed at highly classified government facilities in the Nevada desert.
When sighted it has repetitively been described as "A high-speed aircraft characterized by a very loud, deep, rumbling engine noise (1-2 Hz pulse rate) reminiscent of heavy-lift rockets." The smoke trail of the aircraft is described as being segmented and in a linked sausage shape.
In a hypersonic ramjet aircraft, the underside of the forward body is a ramp that initially compresses the air before it enters the inlet ducts, and the curved underside of the afterbody guides the expansion of the exhaust gas.

 aircraft and military museums
The modern aircraft at the front of the museum might be on permanent static display, but nothing is further from the truth for the classic warbirds parked inside and out on the back apron.
The official USAF museum in Dayton, Ohio, is the world's premier military aircraft museum, with oodles of historically significant aircraft from the beginnings of air power in the United States up to the present day.
Like most Vietnamese military museums, there's the usual collection of shot-down American military hardware on display inside, but another surprising part of the collection outside is various American aircraft which were captured at the end of the war then repainted in Vietnamese Air Force colors and used operationally, probably until parts ran out for them.

 U.S. Military Aircraft Designations 1911-2004
Anyway, my ultimate goal was to compile a list of all of the designations used by the U.S. armed forces for their aircraft and present them in a coherent, easily scannable fashion.
I have seen many books that attempt to do so, and a couple are very comprehensive and informative (see "Sources and Acknowledgements" for some suggestions), but I have yet to see just a nice, complete list of all the designations that all of the military services have used up till now.
I have also compiled from various sources the exact schemes and systems utilized by the various armed services to designate their aircraft since the early 1900's.

There are over forty aircraft which are listed by their common designation or name, but instead of referring the reader to the simple page number, they are referred to the manufacturer in the index.
This is a great guide to warbirds and other military aircraft from all around the world, providing detailed information on each.
It states clearly in the introduction that it's a guide to historic military aircraft that "...are airworthy, or have been classed as being airworthy..." That's why it doesn't include the FW-190, among others: because there aren't any FW-190s flying today.

Not to be confused with official markings or insignia, [27K] nose art personalizes a plane for its crew, because it is the crew members who name the plane and create the art, imbuing the plane with an identity of its own.
Although some examples of nonregulation art can be found on the military aircraft of other English-speaking countries, the phenomenon is predominantly American, perhaps due to the streak of rebellious individualism attributed to American culture.
The aircraft are cut into five pieces, but the panels of art are saved for future display.
