The aircraft is a typical object in remote sensing images. The authors selected several airports around the world and 3594 airplane images based on the public datasets - DIOR, UCAS_AOD, NWPU VHR-10, DOTA and Google earth images. Then seven aircraft groups in terms of wings and propellers based on the attention mechanism were identified. Following, the fourteen sub-groups in terms of color of aircraft and engine position were recognized. Dataset of Identifying Aircraft Groups by Remote Sensing Images include: (1) Swept-back wing aircraft; (2) Swept-back aircraft with leading edge; (3) Forward-swept wing airplane with trailing edge; (4) Delta-wing aircraft; (5) Flat-wing aircraft; (6) Propeller aircraft; (7) Helicopter. The dataset is archived in .png data format, and consists of 3594 data files with data size of 69.3MB (compressed to one single file with 69.3MB).
