Can one properly identify an aircraft make by X~referencing the registration mark on its fuselage?

I have seen a most unusual type of aeroplane at our local airport, through the security fence . I was able to write down the Registration; Is there a web site somewhere I can X~ reference this to be able to identify the type of aircraft. It is a USA registered aircraft. Just curious.

    Is it a civil plane with N-registration? If the number on the plane looked like "NX12345", it's most likely the vintage experimental aircraft. Some warbirds wear former military ID, (or made-up ones) that are nothing to do with civil registration.

    Mexican planes start from XA, by the way.

    think of of the wings being related to a reliable physique, and the physique being related to the fuselage too, yet from the interior. This calls for vast products of steel and bolts and such, yet it incredibly is merely known shape. There are different concepts to try this, reckoning on the AC. whether it incredibly isn't thoroughly appropriate, divide the airplanes gross weight via 2 and that's approximately how lots each and each wing has to develop.

    It is possible to cross reference types with registrations. Try www.airliners.net it's a picture website. Thats the only site I can think of, but I'm sure there are quite a few others. Maybe others can also give their input :)
