General books on Dutch aircraft
  • Aircraft made in the Netherlands  Nederlandse vliegtuigen, deel 2: Alle vliegtuigen ooit gebouwd in Nederland, by Theo Wesselink, Dutch Aviation Publications, 2014, ISBN 9789491993015
    Latest work by Theo Wesselink. It contains an exhaustive description of all the aircraft built in the Netherlands. There are no drawings and apparently no unbuilt projects. It is certainly intended to replace the 1982 publication by Wesselink & Postma described below.

    The entire book can be previewed on this website:
