"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.
