Some child dreams of being a captain one day. On this page, we have provided you with airplanes coloring pictures to print. You can easily print out our coloring pictures and paint them afterward.
Which child does not dream of an own airplane? Let your dreams come true. Get your airplane as a coloring picture on paper. A plane is a powered aircraft, with wings fixed and heavier than air. The wings are designed so that the air circulates over them and supports them.

The man always wanted to fly like birds. In the 18th and 19th centuries, he managed to fly in ships lighter than air, like balloons, but it was only in 1903 that the first machine more substantial than air was built: the airplane or aeroplane.
Aircraft can be grouped into different categories. One way to classify them is by the number of wings. The old planes were mostly biplanes – that is, they had two pairs of wings, one above the other.

At the beginning of aviation, triplanes were also built (aircraft with three wing pairs). Nowadays, airplanes are almost all monoplanes, that is, they have a single pair of wings.
Their use can also classify planes. Some are used for military purposes, such as combat, bombing, spying, tanker planes (which refuel other military aircraft in flight), and troop carriers.
Others are civilian or commercial aircraft, such as those carrying passengers between cities or countries. There are also cargo planes and agricultural planes. In addition to these, some are piloted by their owners just for leisure.
The structure comprises the fuselage, the wings, the rudder, and the landing gear. The fuselage is the body of the aircraft, a rigid structure covered with aluminum, magnesium, molded plastic, or fiberglass.
When the plane flies, the air slows down. That’s the effect of air friction. To compensate for the resistance, the flight needs thrust power. Engines or propellers produce thrust.
The plane is heavier than air. If it weren’t sustained, it would fall to the ground due to gravity. The wings are capable of producing the necessary support due to their shape.
The upper surface is curved, while the lower is flattened. To overcome the curve, the air that flows above the wing has to go further (faster) than the air that passes below. This creates a difference in pressure.
The air passing underneath is under higher pressure and consequently raises the wing. The faster the air over the wing, the higher the support. So the plane takes off more easily when facing the wind.
