RAF Aircraft Serial Numbers Tool
This is a database of all RAF aircraft serial numbers. Currently this contains over 251,000+ look ups for Serials of RAF aircraft. This tool only tells you which aircraft would have been assigned a particular number series.. In many logbooks, Pilots would have noted only the number component and left out the alphabet component. This tool helps identify the possible aircraft based on the serial number patterns. The data in this page is based on this forum post made by Ross McNeill and by the book on RAF serials by Bruce Robertson.
Update Jan 2018: We have enhanced the search feature by linking various images of the individual aircraft. The icons indicate if there is a "Loss" record against that aircraft (We are limited only to SEAC losses partially as of now) and if there is an individual image against the aircraft. Click on the Image icon to 'drill down' to more details.
