What to look for:

  • Low wings
  • The landing gear retract up into the engine housing
  • Similar, but shorter fuselage than the SAAB 2000
  • Dihedral angle (Upward tilt) of the tailplane
  • Notice tailsection (Small finlets, design of fin)

The first two letters in the type designator is for Saab aircraft normally ”SB”. In this case this differs due to a colaboration between the manufatcor Saab and the manufactor Fairchild.
