Re: B-24 acceptance and delivery questions


You have basically three/four dates on all the record cards.
My interpretation of these dates are
Acceptance date: Date when someone from the AAF has made a physical examination of the aircraft in question (don't know if it also included a checkflight)
Available date: Date when the manufacturer advise the AAF that the aircraft is ready
Delivery date: When aircraft is physically delivered into the hands of the AAF.
After that you usually find a departure date, which is when the aircraft is flown away. Often the same date as delivery date, but weather, crew problems and so on could delay the actual physical departure.
