Up in the sky, let’s fly! In this drawing tutorial we’ll learn how to draw a plane. This is a jumbo 747 passenger plane which is the type of plane that you might fly on if you’re travelling overseas.
Did you know?
- The 747 jumbo plane could fly up to 570 mph or 920 km/h
- The first flight of the 747 jumbo was in 1969.
- It could fly as high as 45,000 ft
- This plane had a length of 232 ft and a wingspan of 196 ft
- To build this plane it cost between $228–260 million (USD)
Tutorial steps: 6
Start off by drawing a guide shape of the plane body. Use the image above as reference and draw the shape closely, making sure you have a point at the front and the back of the plane has a straight edge from the bottom up to the top of the back of the plane.
Now let’s define the shape further by adding the rear tail fin and the hump that curves up and over to the cockpit.
Now let’s add the main wing extending out, followed by the small tail wing. Then draw in the cockpit windows at the front of the plane.
Draw the other main wing that shows on the other side of the plane. Draw a line down the rear vertical tail fin for the steering flap. Add a couple more rows of dots for the passenger windows on the side of the plane.
Then draw in the engine on the main wing, starting with a cylinder shape then attaching it to the main wing. See image above.
Let’s now draw in the second plane engine on the wing to the left of the first engine we have already drawn. Now add in more dots for the passenger windows in the middle of the plane.
Our jumbo 747 plane is now complete! If you like, you can add more windows, and even some clouds around the plane to show it’s flying!
