Hey all, I shot an old Vought A-7 Corsair today, its still in full Oklahoma ANG colors which it used to fly under. It is now own by the Tulsa Tech. Center. Who do I put as operator? scramble.nl brings it up as this:

71-0297 OK A-7D D.208 Tulsa i/a apr00 Tulsa Technology Center

Thanks,
Danny

Quoting Fiveholer (Thread starter):
Who do I put as operator?

Danny
Not enough info for me to decide.
Is it a flying aircraft?
If preserved it should be....I think
Serial (note, not reg) 71-0297
Operator USAF
Code OK Categories, Military and preserved.

If it is a flying aircraft then its Civil Reg (note, not Serial) should be included with the serial as a Code, ie 71-0297/OK for the tail code
It would then be untitled with (Tulsa Technology Centre) in brackets...note correct speelling (LOL) (any other speelling mistaks are delibreate) and it would then be a Warbird

I am never very happy adding the Base Code as an aircraft Code, here OK as in Oklahoma, but that seems to be the way it is needed here

Unless, of course, I am mistaken.

Danny,

I'd prefer to see the photo, but I think Mick was largely correct.

Based on the information I have, the operator should be "USA - Air Force" and the categories should be: military,preserved.

The Oklahoma ANG and the Tulsa Technology Center may of course be mentioned in the remarks, but not in the airline or locations fields.

As Mick says, this would be different if the aircraft has a valid civil reg, but this is highly unlikely.

Hope this helps,

Aad.

Ok, here is the pic. I know it doesn't fly anymore, they may use it for some kind of avionics program or something. I really don't know. Here she is.

Thanks Danny,

The photo confirms what I wrote in reply #2:

Airline: USA - Air Force
Reg (serial actually): 71-0297
Code: OK
Cn: D.208
Categories: military, preserved (which includes instructional airframes)

Rare shot, new aircraft for the database, I hope it'll be accepted...!

Regards,

Aad.
