I thought a bit about whether this belonged here or in the non-aviation forum but here goes....

Who has a licence plate on their car or truck which is aviation related? A friend who is a first officer on SAA 738 has LUV2FLY on his Audi A4 and I was behind a VW Polo this evening with ATC747.

Any more?

By the way I did search and found this topic in the archive back in August 2002 so I don't know if this is an acceptable time lapse...I'm new here, let me know!




After Monday and Tuesday even the calendar says WTF...

I know here at the University of North Dakota, you see quite a few plates like that. I know that there is one guy who is LOWFLYR. An instructor of mine had MAGSOFF. The dean of the aerospace school has AERO 1. I would kind of like to get one that is the N-number of my first solo, N266ND. Those are just some of them...

Last time I was visiting some friends in California, I saw a car (I think it was a VW Golf, but I'm not sure) with FLY737 on the license plate... and while I was working for a tour operator offering trips to South Africa, I had a car (and this was actually a complete coincidence - I didn't choose the plate, it just got allocated to me) with the license plate "H-SN 549"... the "H" is for Hannover, but SN549 was one of Sabena's flights from BRU to JNB.

And until about a bit over a year ago, the license plate of my car read "GS-AD75" (the GS was for the town of Goslar here in Germany - and I think the second half is rather obvious... Big grin).

I will tell you which plates I've had since I've already admitted to being an aviation geek on the Flightinfo.com board... Big grin

A few years ago, I had FLY4 TWA. Until this year I had LFT SEAT. Neither is applicable anymore.  Sad

I've seen DUKE 01 which I thought might be the call sign of the A-10 unit at Grissom AFB. Anyone know for sure who uses the DUKE callsign? The former wing commander of the INANG used F4C for awhile.TC

Could Duke 01 also perhaps mean a 2001 graduate of Duke University?

I have just gotten an aviation-related custom plate for my car but Id rather not reveal what it says for privacy reasons...

I've got a Mustang too.. The plates say "HVY JET". You'd be surprised at the number of morons that think it stands for "highway jet" Is there a "V" in highway??

My Virginia license plate number is L-1011. It used to be A300-B4. A few years ago I saw DC-6, but it might have been related to Washington, DC, instead of the airliner.

I know of two states that issue aviation related graphic plates:

North Carolina - has the Kitty Hawk flyer on it, and says "First in Flight"
Ohio - "Birthplace of Aviation"

Any others?

The license plate that came with my '99 Chevy happened by sheer coincidence to be related to airline aviation (at least to anyone knowledgeable in the basics). The plate is:

737 DCA

It also "just happened" that about 2.5 years after driving away from the dealership with my new car wearing the license plate mentioned, the airline by whom I am employed began its first-ever service to DCA with 737 equipment. Not in my wildest dreams had I imagined that my aviation-related (by sheer chance) license plate would ever have a connection so "close to home."

There are many of these on AFbases around the states, I've seen AWACS here at Tinker (of course) on several states. I've seen EGLEDRVR, F15DRVR, FLY1NG,VIPERGUY and on and on.

In Texas you can get the Texas Aerospace Commision plate, which is sortof aviation releated.

Well in barbados some people have aviation license plate but they dont know. There L1011 MD90 MD 80 MD83. There is also A340 A320. Others have the numberfor some boeing jets like 736(737 600) 777 etc etc. When they finally allow us to personalise our number plates I am going for 9Y MWS or 9Y TGN

Yea here in Florida we got the Space Shuttle plate it looks great.
When i get my car i going to get the Space plate and hopefully i will be allowed to personalize and make it say FLYMIA or 777 757. And then i am putting an old North Carolina plate in the front since in Florida we dont need the plate in the Front.

FlyMIA, IIRC, According to my grandfather who lives in Navarre, The Space Plates come Pre-Printed (Meaning you cannot order them personalized) However, you can order the standard plate to be personalized. Sorry Bub. I may be wrong though, but I'm 99% sure that is the way it is.

"Ohio - "Birthplace of Aviation"" - No disrespect to Ohio and Ohioans but I have issues with that designation....first of all, Wilbur Wright was born in Indiana, not Ohio, and secondly, of course the First Flight was in North Carolina...somehow I dont agree with it...
