I know how to check schedules and such -- but how can I find information on when certain planes in special schemes will be headed to my airport.
I was out at RDU today and in succession, I saw the AirTran B712 in Milwaukee Brewers paint followed by the US A319 in Allegheny retro paint....followed by an Allegiant charter headed to KIN to pick up passengers after a casino junket.
I know how to use flightaware -- but is there any way to see registration numbers so I can get an hour or two heads up before just randomly stumbling upon these planes.
Today I got lucky...and 5L was closed, so I headed to the indoor observation deck and it was busy busy!

Flight Aware just started letting you search by registration. So you'd have to just do it all manually finding the reg of the planes you want and see where they are heading. Otherwise the industry has their own tracking systems.

Quoting EMBQA (Reply 2): The best I know Flight Aware has always done that. I've tracked a friends corporate jet for years that way, you just can not do that with commercial flights by registration.
You actually can now. Some of the commercial flights now can be done by registration. I think UAL you can now. Unfortunately the last time I checked - TRS, SWA, USA and FFT - anything with special schemes you can't yet.
