Spanish AF

Tue May 10, 2005 8:01 pm

Anyone know how the Spanish AF numbering system works? I've got a pic of an EF/A-18A marked C-15-66 12-24. Which of the numbers denote the aircraft type, and which marks the individual aircraft?

Also, does the same numerical system apply to the Spanish Navy's aircraft?

The C15 is the Spanish name for the EF18A, and C15-66 is the 66th Spanish AF EF18A. The 12-24 signifies that it is aircraft 24 of Ala 12 at Torrejon.

The Spanish Navy has a different system.
