Flight International's annual listing of military aircraft accidents and incidents is as complete as possible, but it inevitably reflects varying national attitudes to the release of information on military subjects. Some countries release no information at all, others a great deal. The list, therefore, can be seen only as information, not as a basis for statistical calculations or comparisons.


The information comes from acombination of Flight International's own sources and Carmichael & Sweet's extensive database. Car-michael & Sweet is the publisher of the Global Military Aircraft Census (GlobeMac) covering some 140 air forces and para-military arms, from which accident and losses data has been drawn.
