DAL Employees, I Need Help W/ Reg Number

Sun Oct 31, 2004 4:16 am

On Labor Day Sept 6th 2004 I flew standby out of MCO to ATL courtesy of Hurrican Francis. I was able to get on a flight that departed MCO around 02:20PM (156 or 154 was the flight # I believe) and the a/c was a Triple-7. Is there a way to track down the reg # so I can buy a print of that specific aircraft ? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks;

Hi Matthew

If the DL employees are unable to help you out a good site to try and tie up the aircraft you flew on is the following

http://www.bts.gov/programs/airline_information/airline_ontime_statistics/DetailedStatistics/

It is a Bureau of Transportation Statistics website.

About 45 days after the end of the calender month you want to tie a flight up the statistics for that month is released.
For example the statistics for your flight should be released around mid November 2004.

They provide details of most Domestic USA flights and can be sorted out by departure, arrival etc...,

Some of the data goes back to the mid 1990's
At the moment the data only is only up to date to the end of August so if you have taken a Domestic flight before this it might be worth your while to give it a try to see how accurate it is.

Hope this helps
Regards

Flying may not be all plain sailing, but the fun of it is worth the price.

The flight number was 158 and the tail number on Sept 6th, 2004 was 7005 reg number N864DA. This was the aircraft that flew the Olympic torch from Greece to the US for the 2002 Winter Olympics and it wore a special livery with Bonnie Blair on the tail from it's delivery on 12/17/99 until 01/0303 when it got it's wavy gravy colors.
