I'm looking for some old flight stats as Flightaware provides me for the last 4 months. However, I'm looking for flights from the past 5 years. Is there any database that is capable of doing so? For example, I'm interested in KLM1964 on January 5, 2012.

Specifically, statistics including departure/arrival times, and aircraft type.

FlightStats has information going back several years. Their level of coverage is generally excellent, although it can vary a little depending on the airline/location. You will need to create a free account in order to view data more than a few days old.

Specifically for your flight they don't have any specific information, only scheduled information that the flight was from Zurich (ZRH) to Amsterdam (AMS), departing at 7:25 PM and arriving at 9:00PM on an Embraer RJ170/190.

The lack of information could mean that there is a hole in their data, or it could mean that the flight did not fly for some reason (ie, it was canceled). Checking that same flight for days before and after there is full information available.

Thanks for this answer. Now you mention it, I can remember that I had to take the flight the next day, because the first flight was cancelled due to a huge winterstorm. – RoflcoptrException Sep 13 '12 at 6:51
Maybe you should add to your answer that you need an account to see old flight stats. – RoflcoptrException Sep 13 '12 at 7:07
The requirement for having an account is already there - last sentence of the first paragraph. – Doc Sep 13 '12 at 14:50 has great reports on historic flights (I work in sales there). They're the only flight data provider which are selected as consultants to the FAA, so you know you're getting the most accurate data.
