Could anyone help with perhaps a good cross reference web site for UK warbirds etc who only display the old military markings on the side of the aircraft

I have many pictures taken this weekend from Woburn Abbey of old vintage de Havilland aircraft which I require the UK registration before uploading onto the site

Or maybe some expert can help me with some?

Derek,

Can't help with a website, but if you can manage to spin for a copy of "Civil Aircraft Markings 2003" I think you'll find there's a section covering military/civil cross-references.

I have always found the civil reg with a little Google research, followed by a G-INFO validation, e.g.:

1. Do a Google search for (in quotes) "DE208"
2. After a couple of pages, find a few references to the civil reg being "G-AGYU" (but don't necessarily trust those sources!)
3. Go to G-INFO and look up "G-AGYU" and verify the fields listed under "Display of Registration Mark Exemption Details". In this case, "G-AGYU" is indeed displaying "DE208".

That process has worked for me, but I guess there may be some obscure stuff which isn't listed anywhere on the 'net. It's a shame that G-INFO doesn't let you search on ALL fields!

No, no, no - don't tell him! The 'moths are MINE!

Seriously, I've not yet come across the ideal reference for this - I tend to use Tamsin's technique, though the printed "Military Aircraft Markings" from Ian Allen is pretty good, and features a section on "British Based Historic Aircraft in Overseas Markings"

Cheers,

Colin

Another way is to take a peek into the cockpit - look for the radio gear and there is a good chance the civil reg will be close by. Alternatively wait for the pilot to get out and ask  Big grin

Many thanks for all your help and I will try Tamsin's cheapeo way before going the expensive Andy route and buying a book!

Colin:

I could never understand your fascination in the old tiger moths etc but I must admit my day at Woburn Abbey for the international moth rally was one of the most enjoyable days I have had out this year!

Buy a book? Why not just read it in WH Smiths like everyone else  Smile

Nice shots Derek - looks like I missed a good day.

Cheers,
