Category:Aircraft by period
|Instance of||Wikimedia category|
|This meta category should only contain other categories. Files should be in the relevant subcategories|
English: media of aircraft sorted by time period according to the following criteria:
- media of aircraft sorted by the time depicted--for photographs and most media, this will be the time of file creation (e.g. a photograph of a Beechcraft 1900 airliner taken in 2014 would be sorted into Category:Beechcraft aircraft in 2014
- categories for individual aircraft sorted by the time at which the individual depicted aircraft was manufactured (e.g. if the above airliner was built in 1992, the airplane's individual category would also be sorted into Category:Aircraft built in 1992)
- categories for aircraft models sorted by the time at which the aircraft was designed--typically specified as the date of the aircraft's first flight (e.g. Category:Beechcraft 1900 is sorted into Category:1980s aircraft)
