For quite some time I log the planes I travel on. I would very much like to log planes I took before I start logging plane registration numbers.

Is there any way to know which Boeing 747-300 I traveled on on January 19th 1991 from Paramaribo (Suriname) to Amsterdam (the Netherlands).

    This won't help you but maybe someone else will find this useful. The US Bureau of Statistics publishes a complete list of flights from or to the US from 1990 onwards: transtats.bts.gov/… – neo Jul 23 '14 at 19:28

    Might be worth asking their twitter account - they'd probably appreciate something fun to investigate instead of the complaints their team might have to deal with (as many social media reps for companies have to, not singling them out or anything). – Mark Mayo Aug 12 '14 at 11:16

    @markmayo Why didn't I think of that: twitter.com/andrawaag/status/499153862662836225 – user141 Aug 12 '14 at 11:22

    Might also hop into the aviation.SE chat and see if they can suggest any sites that might have recorded it – Mark Mayo Aug 12 '14 at 11:29

It may be next to impossible to find the flight plan and the aircraft registration for that date.

However, there is a limited number of aircraft that it could be since KLM operated only 3 747-300s. The list is:

  • I believe KLM also had some converted 200->300 ones – user141 Sep 2 '14 at 18:18
  • That was an upgrade for the 200 model but not a conversion of the model. – Karlson Sep 2 '14 at 18:37
  • From the flights people recorded about these planes, I believe it is likely the first, named PH-BUU at that time (airfleets.net/flightlog/…). The others apparently were likely used to fly to Canada at the beginning of the 90s. – Vince Sep 2 '14 at 19:27

    @Vince There is no reason to assume that was the case. The scheduling of the airplanes may change due to maintenance, unforseen issues and just because. – Karlson Sep 2 '14 at 19:45
