Re: Luftwaffe Losses Revisited

Well according to US air force stats, the US destroyed about 30,000 german planes (about half of that in 1944) while losing 20,000 of its own. During the same period there were an amzing 14,000 a/c lost in training accidents in the US with almost 14,000 dead.

Whilst for their own (US) losses the records are probably more or less accurate, I am not so sure about German losses. Overclaims could be as high as from 100 to 200% .... It would be great to compare with Luftwaffe records to cross check.
