What's up with this plane? Airfleets shows it as a 737-200 flying for Weststar in Malaysia, but shows additional pics of a WestJet 737-700. Planefinder currently shows it as a -700 operating WJA1140. Which is the real plane? I find it hard to believe that they would be allowed to use a registration on wo planes at the same time and I also question why WJ is
flying an American-Registered aircraft?

The aircraft is registered to an aircraft trustee company in Texas, just north of Houston.

TACA used to fly a few U.S. registered aircraft years ago IIRC, most likely because prior to 1980 it was owned by a United States company with HQ in New Orleans.

B737-2Q8 N413JG landed right in front of me at Farnborough last Wednesday after the day's air show flying display finished. It had Weststar titles on the tail.

I think you mean WS. WestJet isn't flying a US-registered aircraft. That aircraft was leased by WS for a while during their early years of service and while with WS it was registered C-FLWJ. Photo below while with WS.

The same registration is now used on a WS 737-700 delivered in 2011.

Looks like someone hasn't been updating their ICAO24 file....

Sounds like a hex code mix-up. Won't be down to you, it'll be 'controlled' by whoever maintains the database at "Planefinder". Speak to them about it.

They still are U.S. registered aircraft. I was in Lima, Peru in December and I think every TACA Airbus that taxied by us had an NxxxTA tail number. If I had to guess they are leased or financed from a U.S. Company. A quick search in the database shows that as well. Looks like there a couple of aircraft registered in other countries too but primarily U.S.
