Everytime I go out with my camera and get photos of aircraft either departing or arriving. I always try to use the registrations to find out where they are flying to. However when I use either flightaware or flightstats.com they either display incorrect information or no information at all.
Is there a website or some tool that will help me in figuring out where a certain aircraft is headed to by just using the aircraft registration for example N522VA. It belongs to Virgin America on one of its Airbus A319's that I saw today at SFO but I dont know where it went to and thats what I want to know. Any help would greatly be appreciated.
Beware that the time stamp is UTC so will be 9 hrs ahead of you, I think. Also these aircraft are picked up with ACARS so any time is not always when they depart an airport, just when they're picked up.
The flight you saw was possibly (note detected in 2 different locations 4 1/2 hrs apart)

You can also use this, it is from the Bureau of Transportation Statistics. It takes some time to get the stats (3 months or so) but you can search past flights which is helpful. Unfortunately it is for U.S. airlines only and U.S. destinations. http://www.bts.gov/xml/ontimesummarystatistics/src/index.xml
