Comment:
The B-24 construction numbers have several overlapping sequences, all starting at 1. Therefore several extra identifiers are needed to keep the different sequences apart. These are as follows:
  • -no identifier- 6658 frames built by Consolidated
  • {RAF} sequence from 1 to 173 (not full sequence known at this time), built by Consolidated, mostly for the RAF
  • {RA} 9 frames built as RB-24A
  • {RC} 9 frames built as RB-24C
  • {CF1} 153 frames built by Consolidated, mostly as C-87 Liberator Express
  • {CF2} 939 frames built by Consolidated, B-24E and B-24H
  • {CF3} 1796 frames built by Consolidated, B-24D and B-24J
  • {CF4} 111 frames built by Consolidated, C-87 Liberator Express
  • {DT} 952 frames built by Douglas Tulsa
  • {FO} sequence from 1 to 6783 built by Ford, minus 123 frames that were not built after the contract was cancelled
  • {NT} 966 frames built by North American
The extra identifier is shown in this list and is needed to distinguish the different frames, but it is not part of the real construction number.
