Track or follow a specific airplane, how?

Recommended Posts

I'm familar with FlightAware but I don't see any way to follow or track a single specific planes whereabouts?

 

For example, mainly I'm curious to know where a single plane goes over a period of a whole week.

"Live" traffic is on a map (delayed by 5 min for US flights, though), which has a search function for flight numbers or aircraft registrations. (On the same map, you can also have playback of past flights.)

 

For historical data, use the Database menu, then Search; again search for flight numbers or airports or aircraft registrations. The latter will give you a list of the latest flights of the respective plane.

Strange, does the plane fly back without a flight number?

With Flightaware, you can track by tail number.

On the left hand side of the page, about half way down, there is a box that says "Flight/Tail#" Put your desired tail number in there and get the aircraft's flight history for the last 2 weeks.

Ahhh, by the description I understood it to be for private aircraft numbers only so I never tried it. It does indeed work with jumbo airline tail numbers. Thanks.
