Documentary maker Suzanne van Leendert was touched by the manner in which the people involved in this story talked about this old Dakota; with affection, compassion and love. Almost as if they were talking about a real human being. As soon as she realized this, the idea for Broken Dreams was born, consisting of a documentary (produced by Van Osch Films) and a book. In the documentary, the Dakota tells her story through using an American voice-over. We get to know her as if she is a real human being and, via her, we come in contact with others in the documentary. The documentary starts on the day of the accident and shows the various plans people have for her afterwards. In between, the Dakota tells us her story, combined with interviews with people from her past and supported with lots of archive material.
The book is a natural extension of the documentary. Because so much material ended up on the cutting room floor, the authors felt it was a shame not to use it in some way. The book is a much more extensive account of the history of this plane, complemented with numerous photos, facts and quotes. Each chapter deals with a different period of the plane's life and the adventures and the people that were involved.
