The online registration records from the governing authority is also a good place, a little hard to find/navigate, but governments typically need to have accurate records as they are constantly looking to make sure the airlines have their records accurate.

I find Airfleets to be as up-to-date as any such site can be expected to be, and reliable - by the time I see something 'new', get back home and switch the computer on, I can usually find it there. Keep in mind the fact that this data is very volatile, and it takes a group of dedicated enthusiasts to maintain any such database - I know from my own experience this is a very time-consuming task, so you're only likely to find reliable data on a website set up and run specifically for that purpose. I don't know about Planespotters, but I certainly wouldn't bother with the others.
I travel, therefore I am.

For US based fleets at least Wiki tends to be very up to date, at least among the legacies.

Especially at the small airlines this source is most of the time pure crap (very outdated).

JP Airline Fleets is probably the best "offline" source. The printed version is the size of a telephone directory. The biggest drawback is it's only published once per year.

Anyone have any feedback about ATDB.aero as an online source?
It's subsciption, but has limited free searches.
Like Scbriml I can recommend JP Airlines fleets, though it is quite pricey so I get it every 3-4 years.
I get Airlines from the The Aviation Hobby Shop every year though.
The 2009 edition has either just been published or is due very soon.
I don't like signatures...

Quoting Sankaps ( Thread starter): 1. Airline web sites (usually out of date info)
Those aren't reliable and lack certain details.
ATDB is the most reliable and most up-to-to-date database available on the Internet. I'd recommend the "User" or "Extended" subscription.
Nothing's worse than flying the same reg twice!

The ATDB is second to none, and continues to evolve.
How do you say "12 months" in Estonian?
