Hi there,

1st of all a big compliment about the growing database and the many functions to search for

Lately I've found a 'little' problem with the style of the SAF's Tiger II in using the c/n and wrote it down during upload as comment for the screener. Maybe it was gone lost or you are working on it.

Anyway - here that what I've found:

Codes for the search: Northrop F-5E Tiger II J-3063 / 063 (cn L.1063)

Codes for the search: Northrop F-5E Tiger II J-3069 / 069 (cn L1069)

The 1st example is showing the correct c/n-Number used by Swiss Air Force, with a dot after the L. The second example is a more common version now on the web, with other databases using it. What should we use in the future ?

For example: J-3093 is giving different numbers of pictures on DB when searching for c/n L.1093 (34 pictures) or registry J-3093 (38 pictures)

The numbers without dot are more common in database and maybe we should use those in future.

Other Swiss Tigers on DB with dot's in the c/n where:

And when you are already working on that Database ... can you please change the writing on my photos of J-3003 ?

Now it's (cn L1003/76-1528), should be changed to (cn L1003/761528) -> separated and without - in the US-number for finding the whole history of this a/c with one click.

Sorry for maybe a lot of work, but it would be easier to find 'Doubles' before uploading a new picture of them.

Greetings from Switzerland in Spring

Thanks for the heads up, Sven.
76-' will give no search results anymore. As the FMS number has nothing to do with the construction number I did remove these from the cn fields. I did also change all '76-' in the remarks fields. One problem solved.

I think your suggestion to remove the dot is a good one (albeit not 100% correct). This means over 100 pictures need a change in cn. I hope Ray has some magic tool to do so. If not, it will take some time to have the changes indivudually made.

Thanks Joop,

I hope too that it's not to much work. There are still some Tigers not yet in the database and for them I will use the 'new' style of c/n then.

About the FMS number - Ok with me and thanks again

Thanks for the quick action, Ray.
All Swiss F-5F are already lined up as 'M1'. As far as I can see there are no "M.1' in the DB.
So everything is fixed now, I think.

Thanks Sven for highlighting this.

Unfortunately, too many of these inconsistencies are present in the database.

Whenever you spot something, feel free to send me a PM and I'll have a look at it.

Regards,

Johannes Berger
