Default Finding an Aircraft Registration Number

I was on American Airlines flight 541 from Boston to Dallas on April 21, 2013 and I wanted to know what that 757's registration number was. Does anyone have a website were I can find this information? I'm also looking for the registration for the Southwest 737-300 that served as flight 2 from Saint Louis to Boston on April 25. Any information would be greatly appreciated!

The Bureau of Transportation Statistics has detailed information on departures and arrivals that includes the registration number.

It is usually 2-3 months behind though (it's only current up through March 2013 at the moment). I would think it will have April included soon.

Hope this helps,

Yes, the link above should be updated soon to cover March. however, the page is not working well lately, so you might have to try this other page.

Same database, but more customizable, and thus also slightly harder to use, until you get the hang of it

I tried a search for another flight but I couldn't find the registration number. Given my poor knowledge of computers and this website I assume I'm doing something wrong. When I get to the site which category do I need to click on in order to enter the flight info and get the registration number?

it isn't working for 2013 now, but go to brittanicus's link

1. scroll down to detailed statistics
2. click on either departures or arrivals
3. click 'all statistics', or pick whatever you like
4. choose the departing or arriving airport, depending on what you chose in step 2
5. choose airline, month, day, year
submit, and you should see the tail number in the table that results

for some airlines, the tail number can be garbled, or switched with the ship number. I think AA does this.
