Allied Air Forces Losses and Incidents Database
Including 6700+ USAAF Claims
This database consolidates all data previously held in our Fighter Command and Bomber Command databases and that held in our Polish Honour Roll database
* NOTE ON DATES: IMPORTANT: For consistency, the Date is given as the date the mission TOOK OFF since the precise time of a loss is not always certain. Our date is always the Take Off date as this is unambigous and fixed in the official records, but obviously in those cases where the incident occurred before midnight UK time, then the Take Off Date will be the same as the Incident Date. Of course, most Bomber Command missions flew through midnight, therefore a Luftwaffe claim against a plane - or a locally generated crash report - may record the incident as occurring on the day following our Take Off Date. Bear this in mind when cross-referencing to our Luftwaffe Victories by Name/Date Database and other Luftwaffe sources. In some cases other sources may quote the date following our date, using locally generated reports as their source. (Earlier readers may remember we stated our date was the Briefing Date, but it is in fact the TAKE OFF date). To add to the potential for confusion, remember to take into account a Luftwaffe recorded date will be in local time, 1 hour ahead of UK time. When we discover a validated Incident Date date we change our record if necessary

Data derived from many sources. Corrections/Additions welcomed via Helpdesk
Thanks to Personnel of the Polish Air Force in Great Britain for supplementary data and images (marked with a chequerboard device) related to the Polish Air Force, and many images courtesy of our respected colleagues Wojtek Matusiak and Robert Gretzyngier. Other images from our own archives.

When searching for non-English names, letter accents are essential and must be used. Thus a search for bućko will NOT necessarily be found by searching for bucko. In some cases we have also included the non-accented version somewhere in the listing to help you find the right entry, but you cannot depend on us having done so.

Responding to requests that respects may be paid in this database to a loved one or friend, or someone you want to recognize, an In Memoriam plaque may now be placed next to any entry. See our Donate Page for details. Search for In Memoriam in this database to see examples of plaques which have been placed.

Polish Air Force personnel have a supplementary database containing more information and many more entries. Check the following:

ON REQUEST, MORE INFORMATION CAN USUALLY BE RETRIEVED FROM OUR RESEARCH ARCHIVE ON EVERY SINGLE ENTRY IN THIS DATABASE, AND ON NAMES YET TO BE ENTERED.

You can now search on a minimum of 2 characters (previously minimum was 3). To search for single character squadrons such as 5, append Sqd, thus search for 5 Sqd
