North American Survivors, by Roy Blewett "North American Survivors" by Roy Blewett (Gatwick Aviation Society, 2005) is an excellent handbook to take out on the road or use at home as a reference guide for searching out Classic Airliners.
It offers status and information on vintage transports (both propellor and jets) and are listed by Canadian and US States; there are three appendixes covering aircraft in Mexico, a listing of extant Beech 18s and “US Army Air Force Skytrains and Skytroopers; where are they now?”.
The book is in easy to use A5 format and fits easy in any size of bag. The 358 pages offer a huge amount of information and is of great use in planning a trip to N.America.
I hope others will follow in the example set by this book.


The third edition of Survivors set out to establish how many classic Western-built transport aircraft survive, where they can be found and their status. Over 90 aircraft types are included, dating from the Ford Tri-Motor to the BAC One-Eleven; and ranging in size from the Lockheed 10 to the mighty Convair XC-99.
