Are you familiar with flightaware.com? If you sign up you can get live flight tracking by e-mail...or you can track specific aircraft, flight numbers, or random flights. Any aircraft who talks to atc using using flight following or an IFR flight plan is trackable on there.

You might want to be more specific about the airline and type that you're interested in. A general, "This would be cool for FS" probably won't get much attention. But I've asked narrower questions here about ops, plans or simple aircraft handling - and said that it was for FS - and have had wonderfully detailed responses from the guys on the ground, in the tower and at the pointy end, (you know who you are - thank you again!).
Alternatively, and at the risk of being off-topic for the forum, have you had a look at the flight plans in FS-Traffic? They're not accurate, but they're realistic.

How about Continental's N14214? I've been strangely attached to that plane since I rode it back in November of 2005..
I do a nerdy thing during class. I'll take a specific plane from any airline that I'm familiar with and make up routes (routes that it would seem likely for it to fly) and times and days just to pass time. It's pretty cool actually, I think...

Flightaware is a great tool, however it's cumbersome and sometimes impossible to follow a particular aircraft. The poster offered everything including the flight numbers and departure/arrival times. As far as being specific, I was trying to be a open as possible in hopes of soliciting as many responses as possible. Another Southwest threat would be great since their high daily cycles, but I am open to any airline. Thanks again.
