Many decades ago one of the aviation societies produced a book with (at the time) a list of all uk aircraft registrations starting I think with G-AAAA. It gave details of each of the aircraft and their fate, eg: written off, scrapped, sold as, etc, with dates. Unfortunately they never updated the book which I found very useful and historically interesting. Does anything similar exist to-day? I've searched the internet and found nothing. Of course there is G-INFO available on-line but it would be a heck of a chore to enter every registration one by one to compile a record from G-AAAA to G-ZZZZ. Maybe that is why !!
Have you tried Civil Aviation Markings although this changes yearly might be the book your after. Covers all G- and M- aircraft.
As a start you can try http://www.airhistory.org.uk/gy/download.html but this only goes up to G-AFZZ! I'm sure there are other resources though.
Hi Airbusyoung, Yes I get CAM every year and it's a pain updating my spots every time and it does not detail aircraft fate/history. Registrations come and go and unless you research every one they are lost. What about EasyJet re-registers to OE- for example??
Hi plumtim, Thank you for your reply. As you say, they have only got as far as G-AFZZ which isn't much help. There really doesn't seem to be any other source available. Maybe G-INFO is the only way to go but I'm not sure I've got that length of life left to compile a complete register !!
hi, a newbe catching up with the posts, there was a site from G-AAAA to the latest, but the site owner pulled it as he was i think getting abuse etc...
stay safe, regards, dave...
