    Default Squadron monthly returns

    Hi,

    Probably a strange question this. How would I be able to find out exactly what aircraft (by serial numbers) a squadron had on strength for any given month? Did they compile monthly return reports that indicated what aircraft they had? And if so where would these reports be held?

    Regards,

    Alex

    In ORBs there is usually a small section stating how many aircraft were on strength each month but not which aircraft they were.

    For indentities you have to go through the month for operational flying, but that won't give you hack aircraft and ones on strength but kept as maintainance spares (both in terms of using them for parts and an aircraft to cover for ones taken in for servicing).

    Hi,

    Thanks for your reply. I have a number of ORBs so I'll just have to do some careful cross checking.
