This is a list of various types of aircraft, helicopters, and other airborne vehicles.
Commerical Aircraft Edit
Military Aircraft Edit
Auxiliary Aircraft Edit
These types of aircraft are not used as front-line combat vehicles and are primarily used to transport materials and soldiers, sensor equipment, and training. An example of a typical auxiliary aircraft would be the C-97 Stratofreighter, which was primarily used to transport materials. They are, also, termed freighters as well. 
Bombers are used to drop large amounts of ordinance on targets. An example of an older bomber would be the B-29 Super Fortress used by the United States Air Force during the latter half of World War II. 
Helicopters are a type of aircraft that uses rotors to generate the lift to be air borne. In 1988, Dirk Pitt chartered a helicopter to go and find missing aircraft in the Sawatch Mountains in Colorado. South African Defense Force helicopters patrolled the border with Mozambique in Natal Province.
