Help with a Tail Number

I'm looking for some help finding a tail number on an Alaska flight. Living in Crystal City by DCA, I see quite an array of planes and special liveries. I've been lucky to recently get pics of both the "Starliner 75" and "Spirit of Seattle". Today, I saw another special one and I "think" is was Alaska, but it was too late to see clearly. I believe it was flight AS 771 as all the rest during that time were US, so my goal is to be able to figure out when it will back to DCA. Unfortunately, my normal methods aren't showing the tail number:

I appreciate any help. Thanks!

Flight Stats shows todays flight 771 was N569AS which was the Starliner. HOWEVER, flight 4 which I believe turns to flight 771 was flown by N570AS which is the new Disney "Cars" livery. http://www.airliners.net/photo/Alask...fb5d06c1bef755

Great! Thanks so much. It definitely had a much "busier" tail, wish I had seen it sooner to get a better look. It's odd though, I've seen more of the special Alaska liveries in the last two weeks than I have in the last two years.

PDX - DCA turns into DCA - SEA on the return.

SEA - DCA turns into DCA - PDX on the return.

So that would account for the change in the tail numbers.
