Flight Tracking Prior To 1995?

Sun Apr 13, 2003 5:36 pm

I have just read the posting on flight tracking for years back. The site suggested for flights on US airlines only goes back to 1995, is there any chance to track flights further back?
My first USA trip was on Delta in 1993, flying FRA-MIA, FLL-ATL and ATL-FRA, the aircraft were two B763ERs, plus another B763, probably a non-ER. I didn’t take care of registrations in those days and now I’d really like to get them. I even wrote to Delta some years ago to ask for flight statistics on the particular dates but I have never received an answer.

Any ideas?

I don't know if records are kept that long. They probably don't have to keep them after a certain time period. And since 1993 the airlines have changed everything, including the computer systems that keep these records.

Have you tried looking at http://www.bts.gov?
