I use fboweb.com and really like it. You can set it up so that you are notified when ever a pilot initiates a flight plan for an airport you have designated. It covers both private and commercial flights.
A majority of the time it will say the name of the person or company which owns the plane. Of course someone like Donald Trump may have the plane registered under some obscure company that he owns that you may not be familiar with. On some flights, the owners name is blocked per the wishes of the owner. If I understand it right, they can accomplish this by filing some form which states that they do not wish the owners information to be released on public flight tracking software.

"HOW CAN YOU TELL WHO IT IS LIKE DONALD TRUMP DOES IT SAY HIS NAME?"
For that you need the specialized version where they use the super-secret spy cameras on satelites. They look through the windows and use facial recognition software and match it against a database created from back-issues of People magazine from the past 20 years.
