Airplanes have become one of the most common means of transportation, bringing great convenience to people's travel. But do you really know the mystery behind the rules and common sense that seem to be taken for granted on passenger airplanes?
Where does the air we breathe in the cabin come from? Airplanes have a set of equipment on board that can suck in low-temperature, low-pressure air from the outside world during flight and then pressurize, warm, filter and send it into the cabin.
Why are cabin lights dimmed when landing at night? This way, after landing, passengers can see more clearly outside as their eyes adjust easily to the intensity of the light outside as they disembark from the airplane.
Specially designed airliners appeared in 1919, were made in the UK and had only 4 seats. Currently, the largest passenger airplane is the A380, manufactured by Airbus, with 555 seats.
In today's drawing tutorial, we are going to learn how to draw an airliner. It has a round body, just like the bread that mom just baked, you like it don't you?
We will draw the nose, then finish the fuselage, and finally add the wings, tail, windows, etc. Besides that, we can draw the sun, clouds, even birds and a rainbow next to it, so if you like it, come and try to draw it!

How to Draw an Airliner Step by Step
Step 1 Draw the outline of the nose.
We will start by drawing the body of this airliner in order from left to right. In this step, let's try to draw the outline of the nose first.
We will try to draw a smooth curve, similar to a "C", but with the lower end extended to the right.
However, we don't need to make that extension too long, and in the fourth step of this tutorial, we will draw a wing on its right side.
Step 2 Draw the cockpit of this airliner.
Let's look at the top end of the "C" shape, and to the right of that, we're going to try to draw the cockpit of this airliner.
Don't be in a hurry to start, but let's look at the shape of the cockpit. It's roughly triangular, but each side is curved instead of straight.
Let's start by drawing the curve on the far left, and then notice the height of that corner on the far right, where you can try to draw a dot as a marker.
Step 3 Outline the fuselage of this airliner.
It's time to draw the outline of the fuselage of this airliner. Let's look at the top of the cockpit and draw a curve from it to the right. This line is close to horizontal.
Then draw a line from the right end of this curve toward the bottom right, a line whose length you can compare to any edge of the cockpit.
In this way we have completed the fuselage of this airliner. Of course, there's still a big gap at the bottom of this fuselage, it doesn't matter, we're going to draw a wing here in the next step.
Step 4 Draw one of the wings of this airliner.
We can think of this wing as being made up of three parts, the left and right parts of the wing, and the engine at the bottom.
Start by drawing a curve from left to right to get the bottom edge of the wing. Then draw the right part of this wing. Add two more curves to complete the wing.
At the bottom of this wing, draw an oval first, but of course it is incomplete. Then add a curve to the right of it to get an engine.
Step 5 Draw the tail of this airliner.
To the right of the wing we drew in the previous step, let's draw a tail. It looks like Iron Man's shield, don't you think?
Draw two curves from left to right and join their ends to form a rugby ball like shape. You need to pay attention to its position without getting confused about how to finish it.
Draw a curve on this tail to form a valley. Ok, we have completed this step, next let's draw the other wing of this airliner.
Step 6 Draw the other wing of this airliner.
This wing is located on the back of this airliner, so it will look smaller. Again, we can think of it as being made up of three parts.
First draw the part of this wing near the fuselage and add a line to it. Then draw an incomplete oval to its left.
After drawing this wing, draw a curve from its bottom to reach the nose. The wings of this airliner are all done!
Step 7 Add details to this airliner.
Let's look to the nose of this airliner where we're going to draw a circle. You need to note where it starts and where it ends.
After you've drawn that circle, start on its right side and draw a smooth curve towards that wing that we drew first.
Then between that wing and that tail, we'll draw a short line to connect them as well.
Step 8 Add windows and a tail for this airliner.
At the tail of this airliner, draw a straight line from top to bottom to reach its top. Then draw a line from the top of this line toward the bottom left to reach the fuselage.
On the right of the cockpit, draw three ovals as windows on the fuselage of this airliner. They are the same size and have the same spacing between the two adjacent ones.
Congratulations, by working hard you have drawn this cute airliner and the next coloring step are so easy that you won't have any trouble!
Step 9 Color this cute airliner.
When coloring this airliner, you can choose any color you like without having to be exactly the same as the picture above.
And after the complete basic coloring, you can also try to add shading to this airliner, which will make it look even better!
Besides that, it's also a good idea to color the part of the paper other than this airliner blue, as if it's flying in the sky.
