Famous Flights

Back to the main menu


For those who would like to know more about Fokker, his planes or the various flights and pioneers featured in my site, I include this bibliography. It is by no means exhaustive. For the most part it is limited to those books in my collection that I actually consulted during the making of this site. When books were published in English and Dutch, both titles are listed irrespective of which version I used.
