    Ok just had a good look at yhe USA and there are a large number of aircraft with that rego, and all showing no ADSB code, so this would say to me its a FAA setting in the USA radar system,

    Just put in a flight number into http://www.libhomeradar.org/ and it came up with the rego, this could be a pointer to help you out,

    on the second question, if you useing FR 24/7 on a computer you can do a search of the data base which drops down from the top of the FR24/7 page, of if its not showing, also try http://flightaware.com/ with the flight number...
    Thanks. I've tried both the database and Flightaware already....usually if it's a private flight I can come up with the reg#. However, for commercial flights, all I ever find is the flight#. Don't know why, but some airlines like US Airways and Frontier almost always show a reg# in FR24, but no luck on all the others.....

    Aircraft Registrations in FR24

    I am a relatively new plane spotter, and use FR24 to help identify some aircraft. However, I notice that about a third of ALL the aircraft showing on the flight map use the generic information of being an Alaska Airlines B737 with registration N705AS. Is this a problem with something I am doing wrong, or is it a glitch in the program?

    On a side note, if I have the date and time I spotted an aircraft, and I have the type of aircraft and the flight number, is there any website I can use to do a reverse search on the flight number to get the registration number of the aircraft in question? Thanks for any help.
