The explanations and regulations behind the United States's military aircraft identification system. The 'Buzz Number' system, the famous identification system for US Army and US Air Force aircraft from late 1945 to the mid-1960s, was developed as a deterrent to Eighth Air Force pilots engaged in unauthorised low-level flying over post-war Europe. This practice, called "buzzing", prompted the need for ground observers to be able to identify and report a particular offending aircraft. In response to this need, a system of letters and numbers was developed to uniquely identify each aircraft in inventory. This book includes an in-depth explanation of the buzz number system as well as its many applications. This book is the ultimate buzz number reference for modellers and aviation enthusiasts.
