Major losses of aircraft

This 'calendar' gives details of the major losses suffered by individual Bomb Groups on the day shown. Bomb Groups typically contributed 30-40 aircraft to a mission, so a loss of nine aircraft is around one quarter of the planes from that airfield.

 

The data is principally drawn from the 8th Air Force Historical Society website
