Variations on the Batplane

Although the Batplane was drawn with fair consistency throughout the 1940's, variations did appear from time to time (almost certainly a result of different artists working on the books). The two panels below (both from Batman No. 12).show the most common variation. The top panel shows a Batpane with a wide cabin and windows typical of a small, civilian aircraft. The lower panel shows a Batplane with a sliding canopy as might be found on a military fighter plane.
