Thanks to WIX the following info provided. Getting unit allocations for any US Army aircraft, can prove to be a very difficult process, as opposed to the USAF and USN, who have the aircraft history cards freely available.

The only records held by the US Army are from 1962 onwards and are not very user friendly. The list by the 15th of each month of service, the unit operating that individual serial number, but the unit is only listed by a UIC (Unit Identification Code).

You will have to submit a FOIA request for the DA Form 1352 report, for the military serial number you are looking for.

Keep you fingers crossed and prepare for a wait!

So to clarify, this is "U.S. Army" aircraft (as in helicopters, transports etc.) as opposed to USAAF aircraft.  The info can always be sketchy.  There is a (WWII) B-17 listed as "surveyed at Walla Walla" (Wa), when in fact the remains of the aircraft are at Avon Park where the mishap occurred.  One more reason we try to use multiple sources such as local news.  Dennis

What about USMC aircraft?  Do they fall under USN records?

Yes, USMC aircraft are under US Navy Records, follow the same procedures for USMC as for USN.
