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.  HA

Check out page 62 (116 in the book).  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.
