  • How to find reg for military jets

    Hello! I went to KMCC yesterday in Sacramento. I took many shots of those interesting military aircrafts, however, I have trouble finding the registrations of those jets. eg. 42822 is painted on the tail but when I tried to upload picture, I can't find any information on this aircraft...Anyone can help? Is there an easy way to find regs? Any good website you recommand me to go on?

    EDITED: Sorry not sure if this is the place to post this.

    I searched around this forum and found
    How do I know what year the serial number is in??

    Thank you

    Would help if you tell us what aircraft you shot.

    However I bet the aircraft you mean is 54-2822 a VC-131D cn 232 preserved as "California One" at Sacramento.

        In the U.S. Navy's case (as well as the Coast Guard and some NASA aircraft), aircraft registration is determined by the six-digit BUNO number, i.e. 163429, 165666, etc.
