Romney & Ryan Tail Numbers


#1

Does anyone have the tail numbers?
Presidential Candidates?
Romney-JUS101. Ryan-JUS251.
Why the J on the tail number?

That isn’t a tail number. A tail number, for US registered aircraft, begins with the letter “N” followed by 5 characters. These 5 characters can be 1 to 5 digits and 0, 1, or 2 letters.

JUS101 is an example of a flight ID.

As I posted elsewhere in answer to the same question, JUS is an aircrafts operator code.

You’re partially right about the tail number. It can consist of up to 5 characters.

  • One to five numbers (N12345)

  • One to four numbers followed by one letter (N1234Z)

  • One to three numbers followed by two letters (N123AZ)

  • The first number cannot be the number 0

  • The numbers 1 through 99 inclusive are used only by the FAA

  • The letters “I” and “O” are not used.

Please SEARCH the forum before asking a question. Hint: it’s better to use Google to search this forum than the forum’s search feature.

aren’t they blocked? Can’t imagine the USSS would allow the airplanes to be tracked . . .

Both tail numbers are now blocked.
