Problems in finding old registrations

Mon Jul 24, 2017 8:54 pm

Hello all,

I know this has been asked numerous times, and I have done some research in finding old registrations, however it seems I cannot get the results out of the common webpages such as http://www.libhomeradar.org/ or http://www.acarsd.org/. Every time I search it doesn't return any results. What am I doing wrong?

The background is, I am running a flightlog for my nephew and I have missed a few of his flights. So in case anyone has the patience, maybe someone can help in finding these regs?
The missing flights are the following:

14/11/2011 ZRH-MAD IB3475
22/03/2013 ZRH-TXL LX976
25/03/2013 TXL-ZRH LX967
23/05/2013 ZRH-VIE HG8151
23/05/2013 VIE-KLX HG3824
30/05/2013 KLX-VIE HG3825
30/05/2013 VIE.ZRH HG8252
20/11/2013 ZRH-HKG LX138
04/12/2013 HKG-ZRH LX139
19/07/2015 MUC-MAH X3 2528
26/07/2015 MAH-MUC X3 2529

Thank you in advance for any suggestions.
Regards,
Loran

Try out this website https://planefinder.net/. It is a plane tracking website which gives you the option to see flights in the past and it shows the registration of the aicraft. It help me a lot with logging registrations.

Unfortunately it doesn't go back as far as I want. I have missing registrations from 2000-2015. I was looking for something like www.lhr-lgw.co.uk but for airports not just LHR and LGW. This is excellent however for these airports with all landings and takeoffs documented back years.

I also found www.flightstats.com useful. It had details for flights timings and aircraft type back to Feb 06 BUT only registrations on my flights back to 2014/2015 ish. This might help with you later flights. However it is a subscription service. I paid for a month and cancelled after I got my flight information. On website go to Historical Flight Status but you need the $24.99 subscription to do so. Hope this helps you at least even though I'm still stuck.

Sorry I have looked into ACARS data, my site only 2006-2012, so the only thing I can find is your IB3475 from ZRH-MAD. Unfortunately this flight is not showing but the flight pair IB3476 (MAD-ZRH), on that day was on a A319 (EC-JXV). This may or may not help you.

Hi George, sorry for my late reply and a big thanks for chasing my flights!

Could you explain which website you used and how you retrieved the data? I struggled with the two websites I quoted in my initial post, it always says 'no results'. If I knew what I am doing wrong, then I wouldn't have to hassle all of you with my requests :blush:

One option for airports like MUC, FRA and ZRH is writing them an email, I have already recevied numerous regs this way and they have very good customer communication departments.

Thanks again, appreciate your support.
Cheers,
Loran

I used the ACARS data from this site: http://acarsd.org/world_ACARS_reports.html

You select the month and then the date and year. It only really works from 2006-2012 and then no data appears. There are around 25000 flights tracked on a day so especially short haul don't all get tracked. The search for you flight with a four digit flight number e.g BA0012. If your flight is less than 4 digits add zeros before so in total the 2 digit airline codes followed by four numbers. Then hope for the best.

Here is the link for 2011-11-14 for you Iberia flight 3475 but unfortunately your flight isn't on. However 3476 the return is so might be the same reg. If not you can look at all other flights along with the time and work in reverse, This works quite well when an airline has 6/7 of an aircraft and you can say not this one as it flew somewhere else at the same time. I did that for my EY A340 flights. However with the Iberia A320's, There is probably too many to do that.

Hope this sort of helps anyway.

VS BA EK and EY you might find easily. I found an EK flight for someone on here only last week for 4 years ago.

The are a number of "source" websites that are linked. One for carriers, BA QR JQ QF NZ VS EK EY EI. Qatar Airways for example goes back to late 2011. So if you got some on these carriers upto 2015 they're worth a look at.

Google "the qantas source" or " the qatar source" and you should find them, then there is a link in the column to each of the other sites.

I hope this is of help

Thanks for that. I was actually looking a few days ago and found them. It was useful and I got a few but they had omissions here and there too but it definitely was a huge help.

I've found a new source to help yourself. Plane Finder for iOS and probably Android. Filter by airline/flight number and playback back to 2011. I've quickly looked for a few and found 25/03/13 LX967 was (HB-IJN) an A320. It takes a while and I will try to get a couple more.
