RAF Aircraft Serial Numbers

This is a database of all RAF aircraft serial numbers. Currently this covers the J - ZZ series that were active from the 1930s till date. 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. Data for series A - H are not on this page. There is currently no plan to update them.

Update Dec 2018: The Serials Database is now linked to the CWGC Unaccounted Airman Database. Individual aircraft pages now show the crew members associated with it when fatalities occured.

Update Nov 2018: We have enhanced the search feature by linking forum posts where serials of individual aircraft are mentioned.
