Airplane Coloring Pages
We have put together the best airplane coloring pictures for children! But also aircraft such as a helicopter, hot air balloon, and others.
Although an airplane is heavier than air, it is possible to let it fly. That is what makes it so unique. It started with the hot air balloon, invented in 1783. In 1903 the first motorized airplane in the world was built by the Wright brothers.

An airplane is a vehicle that flies in the air. A passenger airplane is an airplane that transports people. A fighter plane is an airplane that goes to war. A fighter plane is also meant to see what happens on the ground. So a fighter plane doesn’t always fight.
The history of the airplane
The history of the Air Force begins on December 17, 1903. At that time, there were a few American brothers who had made a small plane and could fly with it. These were the Wright brothers.
How heavy is an airplane? And how high and fast can you fly? Time for some winged answers.
How high does a plane fly?
How high an airplane can fly depends on the type of airplane, the weight, and the atmosphere in which it flies. Each flight has its own ideal cruising altitude. This is the ideal altitude at which the aircraft can fly the fastest and, at the same time, consume the least fuel. The Boeing 747 has a cruising altitude of 10,700 meters, while the Embraer 190 climbs to 12,000 meters. The Airbus A380 can even fly over 13,136 meters.
How fast does an aircraft fly?
Airplanes are enormously fast. Especially if you compare it to your car or bike. Of course, the type of aircraft and weight is important. The Airbus A380 can reach a speed of more than 1,000 kilometers per hour! But the Boeing 787 Dreamliner (907 km/h) and Boeing 777 (905 km/h) is not slow either.
How heavy is an airplane?
Here applies: the wider and larger the aircraft, the heavier. The wide-body aircraft, such as the Boeing 747 (183,520 kg) and Airbus A330 (120,000 kg), are heavier than the narrow-body aircraft Boeing 737 (41,413 kg), Airbus A320 42,400 kg) and Embraer 175 (21,890 kg). Aircraft also have a maximum take-off weight. For the Airbus A380, this is no less than 575,000 kilograms! You can find the empty weight and take-off weight of the most common aircraft at Schiphol at the bottom of this page.
How many passengers can take off in one aircraft?
That depends on how many seats fit in the aircraft and how many seats the airlines want to have in the aircraft. The larger aircraft, such as the Boeing 747, 777, 787 and the Airbus A330 and A380 can hold much more seats than the smaller Embraer 190, Boeing 737 and Airbus A320. The A380 can carry most passengers (516 seats), followed by the Boeing 747 and 777 (408 seats). Scroll down to see the number of seats in the most common aircraft at Schiphol.
