Re: USAF Losses in Korea
I have a similar interest but started working on my "solution set" only recently. Exactly what is it that you mean when you say "USAF losses in Korea"? Is that aircraft? Aircrews? Both? What about time frame? 25 Jun 1950-27 Jul 1953 I assume--? What geographic region defines "in Korea"? Korea + Manchuria + Yellow Sea + Sea of Japan + USSR? What type of losses? Combat? Non-combat? Change any one of these variables and you get a different answer. Statistics are fun aren't they? :-)
