    <I><p>Flight International's</I> inaugural Military Aircraft Census reveals the make-up, breadth and scale of the world's airborne fighting fleets </p> <p>Stewart Penney/LONDON </p> <p>Flight International's first military aircraft census shows that the world's air arms operate nearly 90,000 aircraft. This figure includes VIP aircraft, essentially unmodified airliners or corporate jets which are not included in the tables. It does, however, give a feel for the size of the world's military aircraft fleet. </p> <p>Leaving aside the Mikoyan MiG-19 and its Chinese copy, the Shenyang J/F-6, the Lockheed Martin F-16 is the world's most popular fighter with well over 4,000 aircraft delivered or on order. The MiG-19/J-6 is in service in massive numbers with the Chinese air force with many believed to be unserviceable. As this skews the numbers, the fighter is omitted from consideration as the world's most popular fighter. The F-16 total includes every variant from early A/Bs to the Blockhttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Military-Aircraft-Census-Military-might-126316/
