- This source has useful information on the world-changing aspects of the airplane. It is published by the Smithsonian Air and Space museum, giving it historic credibility. I am using this source in my final project to describe some of the world-changing aspects of the airplane.
- "America by Air - Airline Expansion and Innovation." Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum. Web. 04 Feb. 2010. <http://www.nasm.si.edu/exhibitions/gal102/americabyair/innovation/index.cfm>.
- This source gave an overview of how early airlines began and how they expanded and grew. The first airline was established 11 years after the first flight by the Wright Brothers, and many of the early airlines were for mail delivery. This source is from the Smithsonian NASM, a historically credible source. I can use the information from this source in explaining how airlines grew and what early airlines consisted of.
- "America by Air." Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum. Web. 04 Feb. 2010.
- This source has details on the early years of transportation, and the history of the airplane. This source is published by the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, a historically credible source. I can use this in a general background and overview of the airplane in my final project.
- Amtrak - Reservations - Fare Finder. Web. 24 Feb. 2010. <http://tickets.amtrak.com/itd/amtrak>.
- This source was purely for comparison, to find the travel time by train from San Francisco to Chicago, which is approximately 52 hours. Credibility isn’t really applicable to the information that I used, it was just estimated information. I can use this information to compare travel times between trains and airplanes.
- "Aviation Timeline, Chronology." Web. 04 Apr. 2010. <http://www.aerofiles.com/chrono.html>.
- This source was a timeline and information about events surrounding the first flight of the airplane. It's information was included in my Historical context section.

- This source has background information and history on the Boeing company started in 1916 by William Boeing. This is from the KCLS databases, and the information is found elsewhere. I can use the information in an explanation of the impact and significance of Boeing.
- Condit, Phil. "Forever new frontiers: Outlook for the aerospace industry". Vital Speeches of the Day. 15 Dec 2001: 141. eLibrary. Web. 04 Feb 2010.
- This source gave me information on projections and opinions for the aerospace industry, whether it will do well or not, etc. It was foundthrough the database eLibrary, though credibility I’m not so sure. The information could be used in my final project to explain some opinion of the aerospace industry.
- Dulken, Stephen. Inventing the 20th Century 100 Inventions That Shaped the World. New York: NYU, 2002. Print.
- This source had little information, but it included how the airplane has changed the world. It is a book published by New York University, a respected university.

- This source too has a good perspective and information on how the airplane changed the world. The economy was expanded, goods were traded easier, and transportation was easier and faster. This is a paper written by a student that was published online, but I am finding the information elsewhere. I gained information from this paper that I can use in my final paper, again describing how the airplane changed the world.
- Martin W. Sandler. Airplanes at Work. n.p., Oxford University Press, 2004. eLibrary. Web. 04 Feb 2010.
- This source gave information about how airplanes were, and are used.What they were used for back then, and now. For example, the first airlines were mainly for mail purposes, one was run by the US Postal Service, then traded off to a private company. This is published by Oxford University, a respected university. I can use this to explain how airplanes were used, and how they are used now.
- Martin W. Sandler. Change and Challenge. n.p., Oxford University Press, 2004. eLibrary. Web. 04 Feb 2010.
- This source also had information on how the airplane changed the world, and the difficulties that airlines and airplanes faced in their early days. Many of the first airlines failed not long after they were established, because there wasn’t enough support and capital. This is published by Oxford University, a respected university. I can use this to describe challenges airplanes and airlines had when they were first established.
- Murphy, Justin D. Military aircraft, origins to 1918 an illustrated history of their impact. Santa Barbara, Calif: ABC-CLIO, 2005. Print.
- This source gave me information on how airplanes were used for military purposes, especially during World War II. They inspired the bomber, and were used for attacking beyond enemy lines. This information is found elsewhere, so it is likely to be credible. I can use this as information for the world-changing aspects of airplanes.

- This source had little information as well, but explained the technology of the airplane, how it works, etc. As for credibility, I’m not exactly sure. In my final project I could possibly explain some of the technical details of the airplane.
