Today’s 7 Most Recognizable Private Jet Schnozes

Posted in Design with One Comment

Many people suggest that all of today’s private jet aircraft look the same, that aircraft designers emulate the designs of competing companies. There’s an element of truth to that. However, most designers keep one part of the airplane same design after design – the nose. It’s arguably the most distinguishable and recognizable part of an airplane. For example, compare the nose of Learjet’s very first commercial business jet, the Learjet 23, to their current designs today and you’ll see they’re virtually identical.

Take a look at today’s most recognizable private jet schnozes.

    All these jets are beautiful. I think if you love these aircraft you’ll see each of their individualities. If you’re not an enthusiast, they’ll probably look the same to you. Thanks so much for posting these, it’s really interesting to see them side by side in profile view.
