Re: boeing 777-200 freighters
@Alaska Fan, that is a great link to a free site to get some of the Boeing Customer Codes.
@Caclm - I use 'The Bible' for airplane spotting it is called - JP Airline Fleets - World Airline Fleet Directory.
It contains a massive amount of information on each active airliner (or rather active until just before publication each year).
The main Fleet Lists will provide you information about
Type of aircraft
Construction and/or Serial-number/Fuselage Line number
Number and Engine Model
Maximum Take Off Weight
It also has an index of ICAO Three-letter abbreviations,
IATA two-letter abbreviations,
Leasing Company designators (four-letter),
Boeing Company customer codes (with a couple more entries than on the excellent site Alaska fan provided)
A look-up table for aircraft operating outside their country of registration
Call-sign look-up table,
Storage location look-up,
Country Registration Code,
It is an invaluable resource, but sadly it costs a bit of money.
But at 772 pages, it contains a lot of information.
I've just ordered the 2013/2014 book which is on special for ordering before end of May.
In this book for instance I see that Fed-Ex B777-F28 N880FD had a previous registration of F-GUOA, but that the second B777-F28 N882FD was previously registered as N449BA, both with engines GE GE90-110B1
