 US Navy and US Marine Corps Aircraft Serial Numbers and Bureau Numbers--1911 to Present
Marine Corps aircraft are procured by the Navy, so they use Navy Bureau Numbers, but the Coast Guard is a part of the US Department of Homeland Security (during peacetime) and uses its own serial number sequence.
For example, the Marine Corps F-21As that were leased from Israel in 1987 for dissimilar air combat training were given bureau numbers derived from the aircraft's three-digit construction number prefixed by 999.
Since this number is seldom readily visible at any distance on most Navy and Marine Corps aircraft, the last four numbers of the BuNo were often painted in large characters on the fuselage sides or on the vertical tail, but there were occasions in which the entire BuNo was replicated.
