Servaas C. Verbrugge (1970) is the editor and the founder of airlinerlist.com. Fascinated by commercial air transport since a trip to the USA in 1979-1980, he has been spotting, gathering material about aircraft and working on production-lists since he was 10 years, first on bookkeeping-papers and by computer since 1989. Luckily he could convert all the stuff into Excel-sheets, so some of the material has been compiled more than 10 years ago. He likes to travel, fly on his favourite and/or obscure planes. Proudly he can claim to have flown Constellation, DC-3, DC-4, DC-7, C-46, Viscount, Electra, Convair 580, Boeing 707, 720B, Il-18, Bac 1-11, Il-62, Il-76, Il-86, Casa 212, 235, YS-11, HP-137, Grumman Mallard and Shorts 330, along with most modern airliners. High on Servaas' wish / regret list are Caravelle, DC-8, DC-6, Nord 262, Fairchild 27, Yak-42 and Concorde.

Paul van Vliet (1958) is an editor for this site since october 2002. He started spotting on Maastricht-Aachen Airport somewhere in the 70s. Going on his bike to look at the CL-44s, DC-8 of Air Spain, Caravelles of Transavia and the Boeing 727s of Tunis Air. The interest in collecting registrations starts in 1984. The most beautiful aircraft for him is still the DC-8. He’s married and has a daughter and a son. So a busy family life makes spotting a little more complicated then in the past. Today he works for one of the largest IT Companies of the world. Paul maintains the Tu134 and Tu154 lists on this site, with the Ilyushin 76 in preparation.
