Help With Aircraft Registrations?

Sat Oct 11, 2008 7:17 pm

Hello Users,

I was looking forward to uploading some photos to MyAviation.net, but I had some trouble finding the registration. The photos are from Miramar Air show 2008. The photos have unfinished registration (some have 3 numbers on the aircraft visible, some 5, etc.). Could you help me?

Here is the aircraft I am currently trying to find the reg for:

And here is a support story:

Could you please help me?

Thanks.

That 200 you see is the Modex, not the buno. If you were there, you should have photographed the buno, it's back below the stabilator.

Thank you JeffM for providing me with this information. I did take a photo from the side, and the registration is visible. However, the photo quality is very low because it was taken with my cell phone. If you or any other members have a program on the PC that can increase quality, please help me.

The quality is low, as I said I only plan to upload to MyAviation.net.

Could any members also help me find registrations for these 2 aircraft?
-VMFAT-101, nose says 227, SH on tail and 27 on top of tail.
-VMFA(AW)-225, nose says 06, CE on tail, top of tail says 06.

Thank you!

Thank you very much Oly720man for this great info. Now that I have these registrations, I need the registrations for 2 Bell Hueys. Unfortunately the info available is lacking. The only numbers available are "400" on the door of one Huey. There are no letters visible on the tail. Same in the next Huey. The only numbers visible are "400". I wonder what this means, as in this photo, "10" is not mentioned anywhere in the photo.

I hope you can help me.

Thanks.

According to this

http://home.att.net/~jbaugher/navyserials.html

there are Modex numbers (see above) that are part of the registration and side numbers that aren't (necessarily). It may be that a '00' in the side number represents the boss, for want of a better expression.

This may be your #400 in flight

You could contact the photographer to see if he's got a higher res version of it that might show more details.

Thank you very much Oly720man for answering many of my questions. My next registration to find is the regs of the Patriots Jet Team's 4 aircraft. I'm really just looking for the #1 aircraft, but it would help with all 4 as well.

Actually, never mind. I found them myself! Anyway, now I need to know the registration for the helicopter for the Red Bull Helo Demo at the air show. It's a red aircraft, and is quite small.

Thanks!

And adding to that, could you give me the reg for this F18 with following characteristics:
VFMA-232, WT on tail, 10 on nose, top of tail, and flaps.

Thanks!
