U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps and MATS Aircraft Lost During the Korean War : 2017 Edition
by Douglas E. Campbell




Overview -
The Korean War was the first war in which jet aircraft played a central role. For the initial months of the war, the F9F Panther and other jets dominated North Korea's prop-driven air force and later held their own against the MiGs. Within these pages are listed more than 1,140 U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps and Military Air Transport Service (MATS) aircraft lost during the Korean War. These aircraft were spread across 19 different ships, 126 different squadrons, by 12 aircraft manufacturers building nearly 60 different types and variants to fly into war. The information on dates lost, aircraft type and manufacturer, Bureau Numbers, ship or base assigned, squadron attached, and fate of the pilot and crew, are here. In this 2017 Edition, an alphabetized index of nearly 1,300 names of pilots and crewmembers listed in the book has been added.
