Below methods search for exact matches, so entering 04 red or "04" will not find "04" red ! Please read on to learn more.
The minimum search requirement is to enter a value in at least one search box. Each set of results will offer the possibility to select a certain airframe by clicking its c/n field. This opens a page with full data for that airframe.
Type the registration, serial or code of the aircraft you are looking for. Any number of characters is allowed, but omit additions like ? or (1), (2) et cetera. Use double quotes around the numbers in tactical codes. Always enter just one item in this box, so no combinations of registrations and codes or otherwise.
Examples: RA-65737, 625, "04" red.
Type the construction number of the aircraft you are looking for. Any number of characters is allowed, but omit all spaces, dashes and brackets.
Examples: 91A904, 1G2201, 4520422606220.
Select a basic aircraft type from the drop-down box to restrict your search. Without a specific selection, all types will be searched for the other two fields. Please note that searches without a specified type can be slower.
