Anyone have the figures for the real thing?
I've found this number, but they are incomplete:
Luftwaffe lost 12.656 aircrafts by A2A fight between 1943/1944
(8.286 in 1943, 4.370 in 1944); 18.000 aircrafts lost on ground.
GB lost 6.440 aircrafts; 55.573 pilots KIA, 8.403 WIA and 9.838
captured by german (too many pilot for 6.440 a/c I think...);
USA lost 43.742 pilots (KIA & MIA). I don't find US air losses.
