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. The original serial list was from AM 78 lists and so were for serials allocated to built airframes, delivered to the RAF or impressed from other sources. The intent was to record from the AM78 all the RAF serial that were issued to finished airframes that formed RAF contracts. The list may include some blocks of numbers that were never issued to a production aircraft. Over time these non-issued numbers will be cleaned up from the database

Please note there is some additional information hosted in this Database regarding aircraft fates or allocations. This tool is only useful to find out which aircraft shares a common numerical serial with another, or to validate an existing or incorrect serial, and trying to identify the aircraft based on incomplete serials noted in logbooks.

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.
