Unknown WW1 Aircraft Insignia - Help Needed


Recommended Posts

Ran across a photo of a US Air Service DH-4 with this insignia on the side, but I have been unable to ID it. Any thoughts? Thanks ABN

My sense is this may be a postwar photo, maybe even something painted up for one of the aviation movies of the 20’s or 30’s.

Here's a close up of the only number.

Here's a complete shot. Where can one look up the air service number?

I use the following company to get Aircraft Record Cards...send them an email and see if they have a record card on file...The owner Craig Fuller is a good guy. The records are in the $10-$25 range depending on its size. You can email the Smithsonian for record cards, which are free, but it takes a long time. Craig's turnaround is a few weeks.....http://www.aviationarchaeology.com/default.htm
