N605JB Grounded At EWR?

Thu Feb 21, 2013 4:02 pm

According to flightaware, N605JB (RedSox logojet) has been at EWR since Saturday, Feb 16th. Is this a flightaware glitch or is my favorite aircraft down for a mechanical issue?

Flightaware shows it in MCO since the 16th, not EWR.

Oh wow, misread that one big time. Either way, anybody know why it's grounded?

Yeah flightaware is wrong. Looks like it might be doing some charter work.

I have never really trusted flightaware when it comes to tail numbers... I have pulled up tail numbers on our ramp and it will show in California somewhere from a year ago.

Is there a way in Flightaware to input the airline and flight number, and see which tail is operating the flight? Or, can that information only be found by inputting the tail number, and then seeing to which flight it matches up?

I don't think there is. I have seen this question asked before over there and have even asked it myself and have yet to see an answer on how to do it.

I think that is the only way it works, you have to know the tail number first and then you can find the flights, but even then not all flights will show up.
