Production[edit]

Someone who can find out please clarify the production numbers, 2 contradictory figures are given within the first few sentences of this article. Justinmo 07:38, 4 May 2006 (UTC)

British Aircraft gives some 6,200 Oxford I, 2,200 Oxford II, and 200 Oxford V. Airspeed built about 5,000 of those,the rest by other manufacturers. GraemeLeggett 11:48, 4 May 2006 (UTC)
There is still a discrepancy of some 4,000 between the infobox and the text? Nimbus (Cumulus nimbus floats by) 23:41, 7 October 2010 (UTC)
British Warplanes of World War II by Danuel J. March (1998, Aerospace Publishing) gives 4411 built by Airspeed itself at its Portsmouth factory (which is the only production figure I can spot in the article) 550 at Christchurch, 1515 by de Havilland at Hatfield, 1360 by Perceval at Luton and 750 by Standard Motors at Coventry, giving a total of 8586.Nigel Ish (talk) 10:25, 13 November 2011 (UTC)
These figures are confirmed in an article in the June 1980 issue of Aeroplane Monthly magazine.Nigel Ish (talk) 10:33, 13 November 2011 (UTC)

AS.10/AS.40[edit]

The Oxford is quoted with both the type/model number AS.10 and AS.40, anybody know at what point they changed. Most of the sources use AS.10 or AS.40 sometimes for the same aircraft ! but with no explanation. MilborneOne 20:42, 4 March 2007 (UTC)
