    Books

    Of course the internet is not the only source of information.
    Books are the original internet and I have made use of the following:

    European - Military Out of Service 2007 - Otger van der Kooij and Andy Marden
    This is a book listing various former military aircraft which survived to today and now call the Europe home. This excellant book makes a good trip planning tool and is useful when traveling to find displayed aircraft. You can obtain a copy via Scramble.

    U.S.A. - Military Out of Service - Andy Marden
    This is a book listing various former military aircraft which survived to today and now call the U.S.A. home. This excellant book makes a good trip planning tool and is useful when traveling to find displayed aircraft. You can obtain a copy via Aviation Retail Direct.

    Guide to Over 900 Aircraft Museums, USA & Canada -
    Michael A. Blaugher
    This is a must-have item if you like to go searching for aviation museums and sites. The Locator is a useful tool for planning a trip, but I would not actually travel without carrying a copy of this book with me. To find out more go to Aircraft Museums.

    Aircraft Museums and Collections of the World - Bob Ogden
    This is actually a series of books detailing aircraft collections around the globe.

    Other Locators

    There are other websites which provide lists of surviving aircraft types, however the Locator presents the same information with a search engine and provides the ability to search for locations based on coordinates as well as categories including political boundaries and airframe types.

    An important data source used to initially populate the Locator data base is other location lists. It is of course important to recognize those original data sources...

    Geocaching

    There are a few sites on the web that provide specific locations of aircraft. These sites, although not all specifically aircraft oriented, have provided much valuable information making the compilation of the Locator database much more simple. It is also very important these sources be recognized...

    Geocaching
    Virtual Globe Trotting
    Waymarking.com
    WikiMapia

    Google Earth Community - Main Index
    Google Earth Community - Military

    Individuals

    The compilation and continual improvement of the Locator database is not just a library exercise. The Locator's biggest strength comes from the contributions of many people who have provided their knowlege of local sites and sites they have found while traveling. When this knowlege is combined into the Locator the database grows and becomes a much more useful tool for everyone.
