Spotting 2-Engine Wide-Body Jet Airliners


The airliner is large, and has two engines ... what is it ?

Most wide-body jet airliners in service today have two engines, one under each wing, and are manufactured by Boeing or Airbus.

Several aircraft reside in the "twin-engine, wide-body" category, including:

  • Boeing 767, 777 and 787
  • Airbus A300, A310, A330 and A350
