Help with Boeing BBJ Registration
« on: March 07, 2018, 08:23:10 PM »
At Washington Dulles on Sunday 4th March 2018 a Boeing 737-77Z (BBJ) landed from the south. Its actual local time of arrival was 16.20hrs, which translates to 21.20hrs on Flightradar24. The only aircraft I can locate designated as such is N439BA (ex VP-BAJ) c/n 62669. Can anyone confirm this arrival.
About 15 minutes later a DC10 (yes it did) landed on the same runway. It was T-264 of the Royal Netherlands Air Force.

N839BA is a Boeing Co aircraft and as such very difficult to trace other than when in flight or by sight as the company block there aircraft movements.  I have searched but can only find movements for the latter part of 2017.

It will take a little time due to the number of frequencies at that airport, but you could listen to the KIAD approach archvies on LiveATC.net and see if the pilot used the reg as callsign:

Click the 'Audio Archives' link for each freq to go to the date-picker
