Finding An Aircraft Registration For A Flight

Sun Mar 28, 2004 8:31 am

I was wondering if any of you could point me to a website to find out the registrations of aircraft on flights in the US, transatlantic, and in Europe. I know I've been to one for the US before, but I can't remember it and I don't know if there are others for those other areas I mentioned. Many thanks!

www.bts.gov will show you everything from registration numbers, push-back times, take-off times etc. However these are for flights in the US only.

Thank you very much COAB767! Does anyone know one for transatlantic flights or intra-European flights?

Uhh, I can't seem to find anything on that site. Where do you go to get the registration number?

Edited:too quick for me
Second Edit: Still can't find the registration numbers. Would be neat to know exactly what airplane I flew on.

For security reasons most of that information is kept secret until after the flight has left. However you may find an unwitting airline employee here that likes to give out secured info.
