The central, approximately cylindrical portion of an airplane which carries the passengers, crew, and cargo. It usually forms the main structural portion of an airplane, and to it are typically attached the wings, tail, and sometimes the engines. In single-propeller airplanes, the propeller is typically fixed at the front of the fuselage, although variants have been produced with the propeller at the rear. Some airplanes have no fuselage, properly so called.
The part of the airplane to which the empennage and wings are attached. The fuselage is where the passengers and cargo are located. It is streamlined so that it produces the least possible drag.

The 'body' of the plane in which the pilot sits and which houses the engine and fuel. Many early aeroplanes dispensed with a fuselage as an unnecessary refinement, e.g. the Boxkite family of aeroplanes.

The fuselage (from the French fuselÃ© "spindle-shaped") is an aircraft's main body section that holds crew and passengers or cargo. In single engine aircraft it will usually contain an engine, although in some amphibious aircraft the single engine is mounted on a pylon attached to the fuselage. The fuselage also serves to position control and stabilization surfaces in specific relationships to lifting surfaces, required for aircraft stability and maneuverability.
