how to know where a flight comes from (in Stansted)

I don't know if this question sounds strange...

I would like to check if a flight from Stansted to my city is on time in the Stansted website; I know how to do that, but I would like to know if the plane arrives from its previous destination on time or not to see if it leaves Stansted in time to get to my city.

The flight would be from Stansted to Santander tomorrow (FR2612 at 14:30)...but where does it come from before flying into Santander???

Do you understand what I mean?

Thanks

The easiest way is to remember that Ryanair usually schedules a 25-minute turnaround. So check the arrivals board for a flight scheduled to arrive 25 minutes before your departure. If there's one from Santander, that will probably be the one.

If not, it could be one of any flights scheduled to arrive 25 minutes before your departure.

The actual aircraft could come from anywhere before heading back to Santander.

No way to know this. You can track the flight to Santander on flightradar which is what I do when expecting people. Once in flight it will be at least 2.5 hours before you see your passengers out of Santander airport. Or are you the one taikng the flight?
