I am unsure what the error is. Any help is appreciated.

Landings.com shows the reg of the plane to be N28CQ. Dunno if that's it or not...

Hey Gary,

I think 146254 has to be in the cn section like the other two photos that were accepted in the database.

Regards,

Ken

The others had that as the construction number, probably from the FAA database. That is the Navy Bureau number, not the North American construction number is 252-17. I have found this since the original upload but construction numbers on warbirds and general aviation planes don't seem to rate the importance that they do with airliner uploads.

The registration is N28CQ. The "X" is for the airworthiness certification like the "L" for limited, and the "R" for restricted. It is an Airliners.net standard that what is visible be used in upload.
Thanks for the inputs,
Gary

The registration is NX28CQ and should be listed as such. As you have correctly done in your first upload.

I would personally put the military reg ("display reg") into the code field - that is something of a convention with warbirds, although there isn't a black-and-white rule about that.

I assume you listed it in the "Warbird" category?

I do not see anything else wrong - please appeal the shot, with a comment about this forum thread.

Thanks to all.

I had a situation recently where I uploaded what I thought was a DeHavilland Chipmunk that turned out to be a Zlin. The input from those who know the Chipmunk much better than I was very helpful and much appreciated.

I don't see anything wrong with the information that's there. What's missing is the generic type and the categories you ticked. What were those?

A question for the screeners and editors: if you check the FAA database (registry.faa.gov), all US registrations have a prefix of N. The prefixs NX, NC and NR are optional, to indicate types of certification. X is experimental, R is restricted and I can't remember what C is, but I think once was commercial. Hence, the correct registration for the Spirit of St. Louis would be N211, not NX211.

This begs the question as to what the standard is for airliners.net. I have some pictures in the database with the two letter prefix and some where I have dropped the second letter. Which is correct?

Although the NL/NX/NR/etc prefixes are not technically part of the official FAA registration, where they are painted on the aircraft, they are to be included. No US civil registration, however, should have a hyphen, regardless of whether one is painted on the aircraft.
