Hi, I'm a new member on airliners.net and I'm not sure at 100% if my question is in the good forum, so please excuse me if I'm wrong...

I flew Air Canada flight AC864 on march 3rd 2007, and I would like to know what is the registration of the aircraft? Is it possible to get this information?

Thanks a lot!!

I just pulled the Operational Flight Plan from the computer. The registration is included there. I am pretty sure one must be an Air Canada Flight Ops employee to access this information.

On the other hand, there are several ACARS websites online, which also have that information. I don't know of any myself, but if you did a search here on "ACARS" you may find some of these sites mentioned.

I've always thought that airlines should have the fin and reg somewhere in the cabin, so that geeks like us can tell... perhaps on a bulkhead, somewhere discrete?

Hi, another question  Smile

When I make a research in an ACARS database, I must convert all the departure time and date of a specific flight to GMT time and date? Thanks again everyone!

I've been wondering about this for a while:

I came to the US in August 1982 as a 5-year-old on a BA flight from LHR-BOS-PHL. If I knew the exact date, would it be possible to track down the reg?

How about the flight number, for a start?

I've always thought it might be cool to have a picture of that plane. I like to think it might be this one 17 years later.

It's posted in full view. Inside the cockpit. Big grin

HangerRat. It may be possible but you will need the date. The flight no. will be in the range BA213-BA217 (off the top of my head) but I would need to check against my archived timetables! If it was a B747, it would have been a B747-136 or B747-236B as the 400 series weren't delivered until mid 1990. Remember BA TriStars often crossed the pond as well, so I hope you have your type correct! This said, it is an extreme long shot and is dependent on someone, somewhere having SEL-CALS reports from those days and tied up these up to the relevant registrations. I can only think that SEL-CAL reports would have recorded the relevant data. The other issue is that 'dot-spotters' would have been more interested in recording non British over-flyers. I think after 25 years, it may be easier to 'let go!'

As an aside, BA aircraft normally have the reg above door 1L, although this maybe dependent on type.

Thanks for the response. The date probably lies in my U.S. naturalization paperwork, which should be at my parents' house. At some point soon, I'll be taking all of that sort of stuff to my own house, so I may pursue that.

I am positive of the type because I remember going up the spiral staircase to visit the cockpit with one of the hostesses. I vividly recall looking out the huge cockpit side window and getting a sense for the first time what this "flying" business was really all about.

A fond memory.

There is also a steel plate usually in the L1 door structure at about eye height which gives all the details of registration, serial number, model type, and owner (usually a bank!) It is like the chassis plate on your car.

I have only ever seen this on McD products. Where is it on the others?

I'm in the process of writting a trip report, and tried the site listed above, but it can't find the flight I'm looking for (AC299 YWG-YVR 01NOV08). Are there any other sites I could get the reg numbers from?

An additional "kicker" in this was the dry lease by BA of NZ DC10,s which were used on the LHR- BOS route among others. But I can't remember the years involved.
