Best tools for Tail tracking?

Recommended Posts

It appears that FlightAware discontinued this capability unless I'm blind and cannot see it. Are there any other options out there? I'd like to plan the entire day to fly with one tail and reproduce all the stops for it.

I really like the Flightradar24 app for the iPhone.  You can track tail numbers for free going back a few day or further as a pay option. Plus is has weather overlays and other cool features. The spotting group I belong to had turned me on to it as I used to only use Flightaware but find myself using Flightradar24 a lot more now. I like tracking certain 747 tails as well and reflying the routes myself.

Cool. Thanks!

Welcome.

At least it's free to try and will let you track tails. I'm actually going to sign up for some of the pay options that let you do more and the pay options are pretty inexpensive.

Just opened up Flightaware - there's a search box at almost the top "Search for flight, tail, airport or city" - hoping I've managed to get a link to a screen shot - but not too clever at this stuff...
