Looking for assistance decoding the last five lines on this IARC. I understand that in Nov 1942 they began no longer recording monthly flying activity on the cards. Also, I understand these last five lines are primarily transfer of the aircraft from Greenville to Decatur and to the RFC, however, particularly interested in all of the other codes/numbers. Is the aircraft total time at the time it was stricken buried somewhere in here?

Thanks,
Jordan

Looks like 1158.5 hours to me. Both of my projects were accepted in 1944, so the cards don't show times at all.

Cvairwerks,

Understood that 1158.5 hours was the total time on the airframe in Nov 1942. Trying to determine total time at end of war, and if it was recorded in the last lines of entry on the IARC. The USAAC/USAAF stopped making monthly entries in Nov 1942, which is when 1158.5 was entered. Those last few lines appear to be gibberish to those unfamiliar with IARC's (such as myself). Ref the first line of interest that starts with "GREENVILTC 2120..."
