Tim, what's JP? Janes?
|Quoting NorthstarBoy (Reply 8):|
JP Airline Fleets, it's an airline fleet book that comes out once a year. It lists every commercial airplane in the world subdivided by country and then airline. Before the advent of the web and sites like airlinerlists, the only way to trace the history of the planes you flew on was to order the JP Airline Fleets guide, and they weren't cheap, they ran about 70 dollars a copy plus shipping and handling as they're printed in Europe. Still, it was fascinating to look through.

ou are correct about the wealth of info on the internet. I try to explain to "these kids" what life was like back when there were things you just couldn't know because it wasn't in any of the books in the local library. And I'm not even 40 yet LO
