I need your help...

Visit the newest edition to the site, the Aircraft Serials Database. The database contains over 1000 pages and close 20,000 serial numbers.

If you have log book entries or photographs of Canadian Air Force aircraft please use the form on the Aircraft Serials page and send us whatever information you may have about individual aircraft, this information will then be incorporated into the database for others to benefit from.
