Hey, I run into this problem all the time, and yes, I *tried* to search this question before. Is there any website you can search for the registry for the flight number and date of a flight you flew on? For example (and what I'm trying to figure out):
DL 1220, a 757-300 from SEA-ATL yesterday (15 July 2011). Any help would be be appreciated! Thanks!

Wow thanks. Secret squirrel technology you used, or did you use some common website? I usually use http://flightaware.com and just go through every reg of the particular plane, but for some reason, N583NW and most the other 753s weren't showing up. Thanks again!
In the "flight number" box, type in the IATA number of the airline, followed by the flight number. Note the Number must be 4 characters. For example, for Delta flight number 123 you'd type in DL0123. Use the 0 as a placeholder.
Then below select "Last 7 days" instead of "today only" and below that select "HTML table" instead of "ACARS Style Output". Then hit enter.
Then it will give you a list of flights, just look for the one with the correct date. Also note flights late at night, maybe 11pm might register as taking place "tomorrow". The time listed doesn't always match up to takeoff time.
This site works for about 60% of flights. For some reason some airlines and some flights don't show up... It should list flights once they're in the air, there's no delay.
