Does anyone know if there is a source (or even if its possible) to find the registration number of the aircraft for a specific flight on a specific date? For example could I find the registration number for an aircraft I flew on from LAX-MSP in October?

Sometimes you can find that info. I personally don't know how people do it, but there have been threads about this and some people have posted something to do with ACARS which I've never understood how to ask for the info because it asks for very specific things that are out of my reach or sometimes it's not possible to look for some airlines not traveling within the US airspace.
CO posts the tail number and origin of flights on their website, but AFAIK they're the only ones doing this publicly.

Hope it's some help and if someone could teach me how to fill up the ACARS forms to track certain flights... the help would be very much appreciated.

Unless you work for the airline, you probably only have ACARS trackers to look it up.

If it doesn't show up on any of these, will need somebody inside to tell you what it was.


After 6 months, the reg will appear on this govt site,

Can't link directly to it since Anet is messing up the code...

But go to http://www.bts.gov

Then go to On-Time: Search by Flight Number, Airline, or Airport under Generate Tables

Then go to Departures.

Surprisingly, the Flight Numbers section does not give you regs.
