As the title says I hope someone here in the forum has a source to find out for me the a/c registration for flight A5 3482 (HOP) 10.20am-11.35am SXB-MPL on june 5 2013 (wednesday).
It was an EMB-145.
Should be F-????
It happens for the first time that I lost my memo with the registration.
flightradar24 and libhomeradar don´t produce any results ...

F-GRGG is shown on FlightRadar 24 to have flown the following:

The matches the time of your flight and although the flight is HOP 3482, the 482 also matches. Many HOP flights seem to exhibit this call sign where only the last three numbers are included along with two seemingly random letters.
Looking at FlightStats, it seems this plane then flew to LIL from MPL as HOP 3473 and returned to MPL as HOP 3474.
It didn´t pop up in my mind to go the (exhausting) "opposite" way.
The highest obstacle was most likely the using of various different compositions of the flight number by HOP for the same flight.
Apparently only after using an unconventional trial-and error method the result was availlable.
