is there any possibility to figure out an a/c’s registration here in Flight Aware? Let’s say I track DLH439 and want to know the registration of a/c. Or is there a chance to figure that out for flight which I took in the past? Thanks for help…
Hmmm, I can’t find AA1897 at all on any of several ACARS sites. I wonder if such short flights (TUL-DFW-IAH) simply don’t report ? Anyway, when it does pop up on the BTS lists, you’ll need to “translate” the AA fleet number into the actual registration. Come back when you find it and we’ll show you how (it’s weird).
Yea, it is weird. American reports the ship number, not the registration like most of the other airlines do.
To determine the aircraft’s registration go to rzjets.net/aircraft/
In the box on the right labeled “fleet” enter the 2nd-4th characters shown in the BTS data. Clicking “search” will bring up the registration.
N3AVAA in BTS yields N391AA (a 767)
N615AA in BTS yields N615AM (a 757)
