RAAF Aircraft

Series One 192134 | Series Two 193563 | Series Three 1964–Present

Members of the Royal Australian Air Force have flown training and operational missions in all parts of the world in scores of aircraft types, not only in RAAF aircraft but also in the aircraft of other nations.

The different types of aircraft which have been included in the RAAF's own inventory now total well in excess of a hundred.

A distinctive numbering system was adopted by the RAAF Air Board in 1921, the year the Service was created. All aircraft since that year have been allotted the code letter 'A' followed by a number.
