Finding Out Registration Numbers...

Wed Dec 03, 2003 2:34 am

Hello everyone!

I was just wondering, how is it possible to find a tail number of the airplane in flight? The author of this photo claims that these two planes that have crashed are F-BTSC and SU-GAP. When I enlarged it on my screen, I could see that the concorde is indeed an F-BTSC, but how does he know that EgyptAir is SU-GAP. How is it possible?

Hope that someone could satisfy my curiousity.

A mile of runway takes you to the world. A mile of highway takes you a mile.

Knowing Mike, he probably has a log book and the exact date and the tail numbers of each plane while they were at JFK. That would be my guess.

Well gee....maybe, just maybe he took more than one pic in this series and thats the one he chose to upload. I don't think any of us just take one pic of one plane at a time.

Simply answer, I shot it (the MS 767) on arrival that same morning.

Come on Jay, I'm not that crazy. But I do have a Shooting Log for each day I go out shooting and what planes/regs I shot so I guess you're close  Smile
