Finding Flight Data Incl. Registrations

Mon Jul 04, 2005 10:52 pm

So often here in the forums I see responses about certain aircraft (i.e. their regs) flying certain routes on certain days etc. Where does one get hold of this information? I can't find any websites.

If I want to know what aircraft I'd be flying on say tomorrow then how would I go about finding out, except for asking here?  Confused

Usually it's from people "in the know", ie airline employees who can look it up on their PCs.

Historical data can be found on sites like http://www.lhr-lgw.co.uk/ (Heathrow and Gatwick only; not entirely reliable) and http://www.v-flyer.com (Virgin Atlantic only).

Thanks Geoff, thought that might be the case. I've looked at those websites before - both good if it's what you're looking for.
