Online Library of Selected Images:


The U.S. Navy Aircraft - 1911-1922 Designation Systems section of the Online Library provides ready access to pictures of those U.S. Navy airplanes and lighter-than-air craft that entered service prior to the adoption of the alpha-numeric designation system used from March 1922 until September 1962.

This page lists all U.S. Navy aircraft designated under the 1911-1922 systems for which pictorial presentations are currently available through the Online Library.
