The airplane has six main parts—fuselage, wings, stabilizer (or tailplane), rudder, one or more engines, and landing gear. The fuselage is the main body of the machine, customarily streamlined in form. It usually contains control equipment and space for passengers and cargo. The wings are the main supporting surfaces.
Modern airplanes are monoplanes (airplanes with one wing) and may be high-wing mid-wing, or low-wing (relative to the bottom of the fuselage). At the trailing edge of the wings are auxiliary hinged surfaces known as ailerons that are used to gain lateral control and to turn the airplane.
