I checked every font in MS Word none even close., Check Google Fonts no soap!! I suggest you do a Google search, it is not a common fonts at all!

Go to Google and look up something like "identify fonts".

Then pick one of the sites called a font matcherator. Follow instructions.

You may need to try several since they will not all find the same results.

If that fails, why not look up the named entity and if it exists, call up and ask what fonts were used.

You might also contact the builder and ask.

If that's a picture from an actual airplane, it's also possible that the font was "designed" by the sign painter who originally painted it. A one-time creation.

I have explored every option that has been posted. I have it at a sign shop now to see if they can help me. Hope so! Thanks for looking and making suggestions. Keith

If you have all the required lettering it's a simple matter to resize it so it fits your plane and then use carbon paper to transfer it to your plane. Once that's done you can paint over the transfer with the proper colors and you are all set.

I have been successful in locating the font type. The word McCarthy is a Celtic font named "Viking" and the words Air Service are Celtic font named Roman Unical Modern Font. Just thought I would let you all know, Thanks for the assistance, Keith
