Founded in 1913 as Pemberton-Billing, Supermarine went on to become one of the most regarded aircraft manufacturers the world has ever seen. In fact, it could be said one of its products, the Spitfire, is arguably the most iconic aeroplane of all time. Producing countless aeroplanes and designs up until its incorporation in the British Aviation Corporation in 1960, how many of these lesser-known ones can you identify?
With Key.Aero celebrating Douglas’ indomitable DC-3, we dedicate this week’s quiz to what is perhaps one of the most iconic aeroplanes ever – and one that still ploughs the skies for trade hauling cargo, more than 80 years after it first took to the air. But how much do you know about the type many believe say will never die and could well be one of the first to beat a century in service?
Continuing our series of airline logo quizzes, this week we present 10 airlines from across the Middle East and Asia.

With the shadow of conflict appearing on the horizon throughout the 1930s, aircraft designers and manufacturers continued to push the boundaries of aviation - especially when it came to the development of bombers with all metal skins, retractable undercarriage, more powerful powerplants and increased armament capabilities. This resulted in an influx of training types across the globe. Can you recognise these lesser-known trainers from across a decade defined by global economic and political crisis?
