Hello,

On my Allison data plate, there is a box labeled AIR CORPS OR BUREAU NO., within is stamped: AC 41-33305. I was wondering if this is referencing a specific aircraft serial number, or is it a contract number. My engine is a -27, which indicates it was out of a P-38, with an acceptance date of 10/29/41. Thanks!

Regards,
Steve

Thank you Dan and all involved in helping with my data plate question. A wonderfully detailed response, and a little back story on my engine too.
