Lightbulb WWII USAAF statistical digest

Army Air Forces Statistical Digest - WWII

Lots and lots of material for researchers, some figures pretty puzzling

Check out Table 159 in section "Operations". Did USAAF really lose one fighter in ETO due to ground fire in 1943?! As opposed to 1.611 in 1944!
If it's November then I guess they refer to Lt. Col. McCollom, CO of 353 FG, knocked down by Flak over St. Omer-Fort Rouge on 25th November, during the first P-47 fighter-bomber raid in theater.

And here, another great find:
USAAF bases in UK and Europe - all of them!
