Aircraft Registration Numbers

Tue Sep 14, 1999 8:48 am

It seems to me that most airlines outside the United States print the Reg. # under the left wing. Why is this? What would make US carriers decide to avoid this practice?
727, L1011, MD80, A300, 777-200, 737-300, 737-700, 747-400, 757-200, 737-800, A320. E190, E135, 767-200, CRJ9

The most likely answer would be that some European government regulations require it. The FAA doesn't.
