How do I find old flight numbers?

Wed Jan 24, 2018 2:28 am

I picked up a DC10 for Prepar3D and I want to fly online on vatsim with it, but I'm running into trouble finding the old flight numbers and the routes. I fly according to real world routes, flight numbers, and aircraft types used on those routes so I need to know these flight numbers. I've looked at vintage timetables but very few actually tell you the aircraft type. If I can remember correctly, there was a function on planespotters.net where you could find photos of planes and attached were the routes and flight numbers of them but I think they removed this function (unless I'm thinking of another website). My grandfather's old logbooks have flight numbers and routes but he never flew the DC10. Is there any way besides searching timetables to find correct flight numbers?

Old heads here may remember some flight numbers operated by DC-10s. Official Airline Guides have aircraft types if you can get ahold of any OAGs.

Specifically what routes and airlines are you looking for? I have a few OAGs I could research that would be a good starting point for your interests.

Meantime here are my DC-10 flights from my log book:

29-Aug-78 AMERICAN 47 ORD SFO DC-10-10 ------ 04:00
27-May-86 CAL AIR 213 LGW PMI DC-10-10 G-BJZE 01:50
03-Jun-86 CAL AIR 214 PMI LGW DC-10-10 G-BJZE 01:58
14-Jun-80 AMERICAN 16 SFO JFK DC-10-10 N116AA 04:30
22-Jun-80 AMERICAN 19 JFK SFO DC-10-10 N134AA 05:26
26-Dec-82 UNITED 243 DEN LAX DC-10-10 N1814U 01:44
19-Aug-79 UNITED 237 ORD DEN DC-10-10 N1823U 02:08
17-Aug-79 UNITED 492 DEN ORD DC-10-10 N1830U 01:54
02-Aug-98 UNITED 1781 DEN SFO DC-10-10 N1837U 01:56
14-Jun-97 UNITED 944 SFO DEN DC-10-10 N1838U 01:59
20-Dec-79 CONTINENTAL 600 LAX DEN DC-10-10 N68047 01:45
01-Jun-82 WESTERN 566 SLC JFK DC-10-10 N901WA 03:46
05-Jun-82 WESTERN 742 JFK SLC DC-10-10 N906WA 04:34 274

This doesn't really answer your question but I'm the same way when it comes to virtual flying and wanted to pass on what I use. Have you used departedflights.com? I use the OAGs they have. You need to narrow it down by date & city but it's pretty easy to find detailed schedules. Without much effort I found a few DC-10 flights that should meet your needs.

Thanks guys this actually helped me out quite a bit, I'll have to go out and research some OAG's, surely I'll be able to find plenty of routes. Thanks again!
