Batwing (BTAS)

The First Batwing.

The Batwing was Batman's aircraft and primary method of aerial transportation.


Batman used the Batwing when it was necessary to travel longer distances than he could in the Batmobile, to counter airborne threats, or to ambush enemies from above.


The Second Batwing.

JLU Batwing

The Third Batwing.

The Batwing was redesigned at least twice in Batman's career. The original had a claw that could be used offensively or for rescue operations. The second Batwing had missile capability. Both Batwings were capable of vertical take-off and landing.

The Batwing appeared to have been retired after the adoption of the flying Batmobile. By the time Terry McGinnis discovered the Batcave, it and the older Batmobile were still present.

Background information[]

The first Batwing was designed by Shayne Poindexter and Bruce Timm, and specifically modeled to resemble the Batwing as it appeared in the 1989 Batman movie. The use of the term "Batwing" (as opposed to the conventional "Batplane") was also carried over from the Tim Burton movie.
