"Documenting the genealogy of planes started a decade ago as a hobby for Mr. Avrane, a 50-year-old former software manager for Oracle Corp. in France. Today, his AeroTransport Data Bank is a subscription-based online catalog, with detailed information on successive owners, operating history and unusual features of nearly 65,000 military and civilian jet and propeller planes -- including ones in the scrapheap -- serving the fascination of aviation fans around the world."

I think you mean ATDB.org  wink 

I have the basic subscription to this site. It's a very useful tool (nearly as useful as a.net!)

Hey AA, the 1960s called. They want their planes back!

Yes, I use that site as well. The only "issues" I have is that they don't provide a means to download all their spreadsheets in one go, and you have to keep downloading to keep updated. Between the two sites, 95% of my research is answered quickly.

I don't mind paying the subscription for ATDB when I get my answers online as soon as I need them.

Yes that's the one. I had no idea that the site grew out of a hobbyist's obsession. It seemed more official. Who knew.
