US Warplanes.net is a reference guide to the designations and serial numbers of the definitive World
War II, Post World War II, Modern Era and Present Day aircraft serving the US Armed Forces by Simon Beck.
Herebelow is an edited reproduction of their Index. The information is organized in a somewhat different manner.
WWII references are still set apart, associated with the corresponding Minor Types (detailed)
and Engines links
Post-War, Modern Era and Present Day references are regrouped for reasons of convenience, with its Minor
Types (detailed) and Engines links
The original USW Index partly rests on supposed knowledge. For
instance, one looking for details about the T-33 should know in advance that these will be found with the F-80; obvious
for many but maybe not for all. When detected these merged information has been split. Then it
doesn't make a difference : the link gives direct access to the same page of this magnificient website. Simon Beck
received a well deserved Top Aviation Website Award for his publication, and hopefully no one will resent this edited
index - there is no harm intended – Pierre Deveaux - email
