I signed in for flight at XA15 at ont for a XB30 departure. I obtained the flight release and reviewed 4 days of logbook entries in the computer for ship XXX. The first officer and I met the inbound flight at the gate at XB05 and were debriefed on the condition of the aircraft by the inbound captain who was a check airman. He reported the aircraft had no open maintenance items and was in good condition. The first officer and I boarded the aircraft at XB12 and began preparations for departure at XB30. We both reviewed the aircraft and convenience item logbooks and the sel. No open items or placards were noted and I initialed the book next to the inbound captain's signature as required. We flew the aircraft to sjc and then to san. No maintenance items were written up on either leg. In san maintenance boarded the aircraft and at that time and removed a sheet from the logbook for review. Because the computer would not accept the page number from the log. It was discovered that the logbook was from ship. Xyz operations, dispatch, maintenance were notified. Clearance was obtained from FAA west regulation to issue temporary logbooks, provide 10 day logbook entries and fly the aircraft on flight to dfw were the correct logbook was waiting. That leg was also flown west/O incident and the aircraft was turned over to maintenance at dfw with no items in temporary log. Contributing factors: this was a perfect set up for this type mistake. We had already reviewed maintenance entries in computer. We were debriefed by an inbound crew who had flown the aircraft 4 logs. The inbound captain was a FAA check airman. The aircraft log (for ship xyz) did not have bold #'south on the cover but only a light etching with xyz on the back top of the book. We were under a pressure of short time to make schedule (approximately 18 mins). Suggestions: mark aircraft logs with bold numbers on both corners. Neither the first officer or I will ever make this oversight again!!!

Title: ACR MLG FLOWN BY 2 DIFFERENT FLT CREWS WITH WRONG ACFT LOG BOOK ONBOARD.
Narrative: I SIGNED IN FOR FLT AT XA15 AT ONT FOR A XB30 DEP. I OBTAINED THE FLT RELEASE AND REVIEWED 4 DAYS OF LOGBOOK ENTRIES IN THE COMPUTER FOR SHIP XXX. THE F/O AND I MET THE INBND FLT AT THE GATE AT XB05 AND WERE DEBRIEFED ON THE CONDITION OF THE ACFT BY THE INBND CAPT WHO WAS A CHK AIRMAN. HE RPTED THE ACFT HAD NO OPEN MAINT ITEMS AND WAS IN GOOD CONDITION. THE F/O AND I BOARDED THE ACFT AT XB12 AND BEGAN PREPARATIONS FOR DEP AT XB30. WE BOTH REVIEWED THE ACFT AND CONVENIENCE ITEM LOGBOOKS AND THE SEL. NO OPEN ITEMS OR PLACARDS WERE NOTED AND I INITIALED THE BOOK NEXT TO THE INBND CAPT'S SIGNATURE AS REQUIRED. WE FLEW THE ACFT TO SJC AND THEN TO SAN. NO MAINT ITEMS WERE WRITTEN UP ON EITHER LEG. IN SAN MAINT BOARDED THE ACFT AND AT THAT TIME AND REMOVED A SHEET FROM THE LOGBOOK FOR REVIEW. BECAUSE THE COMPUTER WOULD NOT ACCEPT THE PAGE NUMBER FROM THE LOG. IT WAS DISCOVERED THAT THE LOGBOOK WAS FROM SHIP. XYZ OPS, DISPATCH, MAINT WERE NOTIFIED. CLRNC WAS OBTAINED FROM FAA W REG TO ISSUE TEMPORARY LOGBOOKS, PROVIDE 10 DAY LOGBOOK ENTRIES AND FLY THE ACFT ON FLT TO DFW WERE THE CORRECT LOGBOOK WAS WAITING. THAT LEG WAS ALSO FLOWN W/O INCIDENT AND THE ACFT WAS TURNED OVER TO MAINT AT DFW WITH NO ITEMS IN TEMPORARY LOG. CONTRIBUTING FACTORS: THIS WAS A PERFECT SET UP FOR THIS TYPE MISTAKE. WE HAD ALREADY REVIEWED MAINT ENTRIES IN COMPUTER. WE WERE DEBRIEFED BY AN INBND CREW WHO HAD FLOWN THE ACFT 4 LOGS. THE INBND CAPT WAS A FAA CHK AIRMAN. THE ACFT LOG (FOR SHIP XYZ) DID NOT HAVE BOLD #'S ON THE COVER BUT ONLY A LIGHT ETCHING WITH XYZ ON THE BACK TOP OF THE BOOK. WE WERE UNDER A PRESSURE OF SHORT TIME TO MAKE SCHEDULE (APPROX 18 MINS). SUGGESTIONS: MARK ACFT LOGS WITH BOLD NUMBERS ON BOTH CORNERS. NEITHER THE F/O OR I WILL EVER MAKE THIS OVERSIGHT AGAIN!!!
