How Do I Find Out When An Airplane Was Delivered?

Sat Oct 18, 2003 4:14 am

Ok so now I know why most people write down registration numbers. Now I want to know if there is a website or someplace I can find out information about a certain plane once I get the registration number. Please let me know where I can find these things. Thanks

One good start could be www.airfleets.net for most types of Airbus and Boeings (except B707's unfortunately !)

You can check out an abbreviated history of the airplane using your cell phone, through our good friends here at a.net. I used it last time I flew on DL, and it gave me a really good perspective on the aircraft I was about to fly on. Just use your Wireless Web/Internet function with your phone, and put in this address:

http://www.airliners.net/wap/

OR go here if you want more information on this.

If you cannot used the airliners.net WAP service, I can only suggest you use a search engine with say, the msn and /or registration. Try adding in the words " Bill Harms" in the search engine and see how you progress from there.

"Jet Airliner Production List: Volume 1-Boeing",..."Volume 2-(others)" both contain full histories of various transport aircraft, including delivery dates. Both are available through World Transport Press (shameless plug), and other aviation bookstores.

Also http://www.airlinerlist.com (shameless plug #2) provides Excel spreadsheets with delivery info.
