Thanks! I was worried about the backlighting but it just worked on this one!
NOT AGAIN, this is a military aircraft not a civilian plane, thence it CAN NOT carry an N prefix.

It's always a good idea, before listing a registration beginning with "N", to drop that number into the FAA N-number query search. This will verify whether or not that number is indeed valid.
Sorry Erik but N65301 is a certificate revoked glider...that and military dont use N prefix

Guys, I know it's Military. I entered the proper number and the Site changed it to an N-number.

As I possess a functioning set of eyes, I am able to distinguish aircraft types and registration marks with ease.
This pretty Herky Bird is a long way from Keesler AFB in Biloxi, Mississippi.

Erik, enter that USAF aircraft serial number as "96-5301".

This will take care of that N-registration problem.

Erik also if you only have a ship number put a 0 in front of it...example F-18 #406 would come up n406...add a 0 and the n disappears and shows 0406

this was probably a stop for the Hurricane Tour that year...
