Military tail numbers


On the photos, I’ve noticed that the registrations for military aircraft are being formatted as XX-XXXX, which is fine for Air Force aircraft, but doesn’t work for Navy/Marine aircraft, which should still be in the XXXXXX format. Is there any way to differentiate between the two?




I posted some photos of helo’s I used to fly in. Old stuff too if you’re a Navy guy Buno’s in the 14XXXX range.

I originally submitted one as 148965 and it was changed to 14-8965. Dont’ think that helps but it also did not recognize the aircraft completely correctly either. Not sure it matters completely but it was a UH-3H Sea King for what its worth.
