...I wonder where that plane is right now...


#1

Is there a way of locating a particular plane (anywhere in the world), if you have the registration number, at any given time?
…I did check the frequently asked questions and the topics here and I tried to do it, but found no provision for it…

Also, as a test, I searched for whatever Virgin Atlantic planes were en route to LAX just now and there are two, one A340 and one Boeing 747, but I could not find a way to identify the specific aircrafts…that data is obviously known, but where and how would I find it?
…Thanks

…Thanks! – That looks interesting – will study later – today March Field Air Show…!
…but that’s a “confirm” then that through FlightAware, there are no tools for this type of search…


#3

We have comprehensive worldwide registration marks for Virgin Atlantic. Put any tail number from their fleet in the Flight/Tail # box on the left.

Examples:

…yes, I see – Thanks. – I just tested that with one of my “alerts” – G-VFAB and find that this particular plane apparently is in Miami as of right now. (May 21 am Pacific time)
There is a picture of this plane that is rather remarkable –
