1st pic: Serial number (Registration in civil terms) is missing.
2nd pic: Everything looks very soft right up until the nozecone. If you get the chance, try shooting the pic with a higher F#, such as f16 or f20.
3rd pic: Looks good to me
4th pic: No serial number or aircraft type.

A serial number would be nice on the F-18, and did you check "nose"? The serial is wrongly entered on the C-17. The type and owner missing on the B-25 (and untitled is in the type area!!!) even though based on the file name you seem to know its a B-25!

Thanks for the replies so far...
yeah, I must have hit the "tab" key instead of the enter key on the B-25... I fixed it on a resubmit.
As for the other shots, thanks for the guidance. I don't pretend to know much at all about serials or registration numbers - one of the many areas of our hobby I need to "brush up" on...
Thanks for your help, and any further help you might suggest.

The F-18 must be Marines: they don't have Majors in the Navy

The F/A-18 could may have had a US
AF exchange pilot or a Marine. The plane captain's (I think that is the naval term for crew chief) name on the nose gear door has a naval rate.
I used to keep notes on airplane info. With digital "film" so cheap, I take extra images of serials, registrations, unit assignments , etc. for catalogging later.
