Royal Navy records show a direct purchase of 50 Goose IA aircraft with C/ns 0181B/0230B and serials FP475/524 (BW778/827 originally allocated but NTU) and no previous US Navy identities listed. The book "Fleet Air Arm Aircraft 1939 to 1945" states that bureau numbers 66325/61 were alloted when the aircraft were returned to the US Navy after the war. It may well be that the serial block 66325/66374 was allocated in the optimistic hope that all the planes would be returned the US Navy. "Fleet Air Arm Aircraft 1939 to 1945" gives the following serial tieups for some of the returned aircraft: 66325: Previously FP488. 66326: Previously FP496. Unusually, this aircraft is recorded as being fitted with radar. 66327: Previously FP503. 66329: Previously FP521. Another radar-equipped aircraft. 66330: Previously FP483. 66331: Previously FP511. 66332: Previously FP515; later became N74588. 66333: Previously FP522. Another radar-equipped aircraft; later became N74676. 66335: Previously FP523. Another radar-equipped aircraft. 66336: The book states that FP514 is noted in RN records as having become 66366, but they believe it to be correctly 66336, which apparently later became N95431. 66337: Previously FP512. 66339: Previously FP480. 66340: Previously FP482. 66341: Previously FP516. 66343: Previously FP510. 66350: Previously FP501. 66351: Previously FP485. 66352: Previously FP495. 66353: Previously FR498. Another radar-equipped aircraft. 66355: Previously FP475; I had this as becoming 66325, which according to the book was FP488. 66356: Previously FP486. 66357: Previously FP497. Another radar-equipped aircraft. I had this as FP500, which according to the book went directly to Bolivia and was not returned to the USN. 66358: Previously FP502. 66359: Previously FP479. RN serial FP472 was a Goose I ex USN JRF-5 BuNo 37796, and appears to have no connection with BuNo 66361. 66395/66594 Beech JRB-4 Expeditor UC-45Fs transferred from USAF stock. 66472/66594 cancelled 66415 (TC-45J) to civil registry as N61910 66431 (TC-45J) to civil registry as N90291 66432 to French Navy 66420 (c/n 8638) to JMSDF as 6405 66427 (c/n 8647) was USAAF 44-87388. to JMSDF as 6415.
