I would like to track the all the Falcon 9-r boosters that are landing or are attempting to land.

I know that the third booster which landed successfully is the F9-0024-S1 but I don't know the version.

Where can I find this information for the previous ones and all future flights as they append?

    $\begingroup$ The JCSAT-14 mission was the first time I've seen a serial number published. SpaceX have a habit of not giving exact specifications. Even names are kept vague ("Full thrust" instead of v1.2) so I doubt we'll see an official list. $\endgroup$ – Hobbes May 8 '16 at 11:29

    $\begingroup$ Some people try to trace the core numbers very precisely - reddit.com/r/spacex/wiki/cores $\endgroup$ – jkavalik May 10 '16 at 10:21
  • $\begingroup$ @jkavalik I like that one. Can you put it as an answer? $\endgroup$ – pcantin May 10 '16 at 10:31
  • $\begingroup$ Well, I did not create any part of it so would not want to take any credit. And it would be a link-only answer too. $\endgroup$ – jkavalik May 10 '16 at 10:35

Space Launch Report keeps a list of serial numbers and versions.

The first to land was the Orbcomm OG2 mission, Dec 21, 2015 which was a F9 1.1 Full Thrust model. It landed at LZ-1 in Florida.

The last F9 1.1 (non-Full thrust version) carried the Jason-3 mission to orbit (Jan 17, 2016), landed on the JRTI barge in the Pacific, but one of the four legs did not lock, so it fell over and expoded.

SES-9 on Mar 4, 2016 failed by running out of fuel, also a F.9 1.1 Full Thrust.

Apr 8, 2016 the CRS-8 mission landed on the OCISLY ASDS a F9 1.1 Full Thrust. F9-023

May 6, 2016 the JCSat-14 mission landed on OCISLY ASDS and was a F91.1 Full Thrust.

There is a good Reddit page that is tracking Falcon 9 missions with the info you want.

Wikipedia has a tracking page of Falcon 9 Missions as well.

Someone is generating a PNG from a data file trying to capture all the flight info and I will insert the latest version as of this writing. I have yet to find a dynamic link to an updated copy alas.
