I need the model numbers for these planes. I'm stuck on the middle top row - white jet that looks like a DC-9. Is it? And the cammo turboprop next to it that I think looks like a Chinese plane.

Also looking for the F5/F20 that's on the bottom row on the right. I can't tell which it is.

Looks like an F5 to me.  The main difference is the 5 had 2 smaller engines and the 20 had one big one.  Hard to tell, but that looks more like the small one.

I'll agree with your DC-9 instinct.

Its a piston engine version so it's the earlier DHC-4 or 7, had to enlarge pic. DHC-5 is a turboprop.

Are those pistons? I thought it looked like a turboprop.

Thanks man. I was going to be way off there! :) Looked up some DHC-5's and the similarity is there but the powerplants are way different.

I'm going to say F5-E on the bottom right.

Shot enough of them down in ACE Combat to believe I'm correct......

My initial thought was T-38 because of the small engine inlets.  But the canopy looks wrong.  That looks like a single seat cockpit.  T-38s were 2-seater trainers.

Nooooo!!!! Wait wait wait! We're all wrong on the last one! It's not a F-5E at all, but the dreaded MiG-28!
