tail number

I’ve tried some test get queries to the flightxml.flightaware.com/json/FlightXML2/ with the FlightInfo and FlightInfoEx methods. It doesn’t seem to be returning data about a particular tail number that we have “C-FLWJ”. However the website Live Private Flight Tracker works. Is there something we’re doing wrong? I’ve done a search in the forums and it seems that search by tail number should be implemented by now. Is that still the case?

The last flight on CFLWJ was from Nov 2013, but FlightXML is only intended for accessing flights within the last few days (usually 2 weeks maximum).
