Timestamp, Meaning Of This?

Wed Oct 20, 2004 1:03 pm

I viewed a flight plan and it had what called a Time Stamp that looks like this below. What do all these numbers mean. Im assuming the first part is the day, but the rest I dont know.

Date and time stamps are used in a lot of businesses, government, etc. I presume that the 20 is the date, and the rest is hours, minutes, seconds. Don't forget, it could be Zulu time or some other standard time.

Well, I don't know if it's correct because I wasn't around when it was done. But it's a reasonable interpretation.
