# How can I draw an aircraft diagram using Latex/tikz ? [closed]

I want to draw an aircraft diagram with three axes (longitudinal, lateral and normal) using latex/tikz. I also need three views (top, side, and front) of it.

Can you give us a link to an example of such a diagram? Please be more specific! – Christoph Jun 17 '11 at 11:21
Why do you need to use TikZ? Perhaps you could create the illustration in Inkscape and include the pdf in your LaTex document? You might find that easier. Plus, I doubt anyone is going to just create the illustration that you're describing without you first trying. – RSoul Jun 17 '11 at 11:22
Start with the tail and proceed nosewise :). TikZ is not well suited for 3d modelling, so usually you cannot obtaing different views just by switching a few parameters here and there. – ipavlic Jun 17 '11 at 12:08
Are you thinking of this, perhaps? – Tom Jun 17 '11 at 13:22
@ipvalic: Yes you can! Sraw it using `xyz` coordinates and then simply change the `x`, `y`, and `z` vectors. – Andrew Stacey Jun 17 '11 at 15:08
