Aviation Number Plates.
Sorry if this has been visited before, but I saw


on the A1 today ..... ex Harrier perhaps?

Also SKY80Y at a Finningley Open Day, and the then head of the Mobile Met. Unit had MMU1.

In the car-park at LATCC,I often saw a car with a reg.of ATC plus a few numbers.

Mine is VC10AFC. Many of those ex No 10 Sqn have VC10 in their number. For example, ex Nav Boss has VC10NAV & there is VC10 PLT, VC10FLY & VC10 ENG. etc.

No, Constable ... I was in a National Express coach, LGW-LHR, at the time.

A certain ex Herc and E-3D Nav has C130NAV

There are rules against using the letters in that manner. If pulled, the courts can take the number off you, it also is an instant attractor to Traffic.

Not round these parts. People get away with whatever they want.

Not the UK reg, but the one in the window, from North Carolina. "Vzlet" is Czech for "takeoff". (Occasionally adopted as a username!)

Brize circa 1990 I remember one of the cars on the patch near me had the reg A 10 NAV

E3SUX used to be available - I almost bought it four years ago. Any disgruntled E-3 aircrew not willing or able to make the trek up north could always go for E7SUX (£399).

About 30 years ago I was waiting to cross a junction in the centre of Lincoln, when a Rolls/Bentley (not sure which) wafted past wearing the plate '1 RAF'. Very impressive - always remembered that.

I have seen a Porsche 911 with 'V1 V2 R', and at Shawbury there was - maybe still is - a bootie pilot with 'FLY RM' on his car.

Best plate I ever saw was not aviation related. At a carshow there was an original Lamborghini Countach with a front plate which was 'T13VOM'. It took me a minute to get it - when you see it behind you in the rearview mirror, it reads 'MOVEIT'.

Saw this one in the hotel car park at Gatwick.

Saw BAN163L adjusted to BA NIGEL it was on a car saying For Sale £3500 with registration.
Some wag added £4000 without registration 😂

I was bored one night and started searching aviation related plates and found this for £250. Couldnít resist buying it. (I donít even work for the company)

Less than 24 hours later an engineer offered me £500 and the dad of a FA offered me £750.

Im greedy so I kept it hoping Phil Meeson or Steve Heapy might want it. Anyone friends with them ?:}

Not aviation related but..........

Seen in a village west of Aberdeen over 20 years ago:
