|Six weeks ago when I was down at DPMO, they told me that the data base they
had on Korea was still close hold. Apparently either they have changed their
minds or have a sanitized version now available to the public, and it is now
posted on their web site.
The URL for this is http://www.dtic.mil/dpmo/pmkor/korwald.htm
KORWALD is the KORean War Air Loss Database and covers most of the losses by
UN air forces in Korea. These include the USAF, US Navy, USMC, and US Army,
as well as the RSAAF, RAAF, and some RN aircraft, plus other air forces where
They provide tail number, date, type of aircraft lost, major unit, minor
unit, and in most cases the circumstances, from engine quit and crashed on
takeoff to shootdowns and subsequent results.
Would be very interested to see the USAFM now try and continue with its
assessertion that "379 personnel were killed in Korea..."
