I bought this little book and decided to scan it. If you wanna download it, link is below (133 pgs, 206MB).
Lists aviation accidents by date/location, city/state, type, cause. Some illustrious names in there: Lindbergh, Doolittle, Earhart, Fokker, Vultee, Lady Mary Heath, Roscoe Turner, Tex Rankin, Paul Mantz, etc. A very interesting mix of aircraft! Also has some foreign wrecks. Mostly minor, but I thought it was interesting. Try this link, I hope it works. Might blow out my bandwidth on YouSendIt.

Thirteen aircraft destroyed by fire in Tampa on Dec 12, 1929. I wonder what happened? Reads like a museum of airplane types. ("Do" means "Ditto") The book is pretty beat up and someone made a lot of marks in it. --> Chris B. http://www.arizonawrecks.com
