    Can anyone out there help me find plane info and flight info in relation to a tail number? Also what sites are you using to track tail numbers. I know of flight aware, but are there others? DM me if you would like the tail number to help me out as I don't want to post it publicly.

    This is what I use for my flight memory purposes as well. Some regional airlines do not report data though, notabley Mesaba, Compass, and Republic's family. If you want those you pretty much have to get it at the gate visually.

    Yes, that's the drawback with the BTS data. It is particularly useful for airlines that have difficult to see tail numbers in the dark (CO, AA), and with AA you get the fleet number throught the BTS data, which is different from the tail number, but can be translated at http://www.planespotters.net/Production_List/index.php
