  • Data Plate Mystery

    Look closely at this data plate. Can anyone see why I have an issue with it?

    Are you asking because it doesn't have a MAA plate number? Or because the build date is prior to the TC approval date?

        Good catch, (June 20, 1951 for the 1A9 type cert.) but no, something else.............

            Might it be that Taylorcraft Aviation Corporation was formed on April 1, 1968 by the Charlie and Dorthy Feris? Dates kind of don't match with when the company existed.

            Maybe just an April Fools joke?

              Good thinking Hank, but no........... This is Terri's real data plate, no April's Fools Joke, and I think it authentic according to the log books, but...........

                  They've misspelled "aeroplane" for a start. <G>

                  And it wasn't made in Alliance Ohio.

                    The name of the manufacturer, and as Rob pointed out the location where it was built.

                      leftovers from the previous administration, and not one swinging dick from the FAA would even know the difference...

                      do you have any documentation for the replacement dataplate?

                        The date doesn't bother me because its a good chance this airplane was the conformity airplane for the new model 19 that was approved the following month. Unless the serial number list proves otherwise. It could also stand to reason why the ATC is left blank, because they was waiting on the new TC number. It also wouldn't surprise me if they used an old plate for the first few airplanes. Honestly I wouldn't worry about it. No one else has for almost 70 years.

                          It was on a Cub?

                            OK, all good answers, but I think Rob was onto it. The aeroplane was built in Conway Pennsylvania. They probably had a bunch of old plates from Alliance they wanted to use up...........

                            The "conformity airplane" answer was good too, but I don't think correct. It's serial number 4-13029 N6629N and there was a 28N , serial 4-13028. There seems to have been at least one prototype, serial 12000, N5601M, an 1948 model, which lives just 5 minutes away. It may have been at the factory for a couple of years before it was sold........... nice plane----here's a pic

                            Lots of little mysteries about my Model 19, but I am not worried about the data plate. : Click image for larger version

                              How does the data plate compare to the airworthiness certificate, registration and other records like logs & 337?
