These list were created to give easy access to the different aircraft used by the Air Forces of the World. I was inspired by William Green and his work with the Air Forces of the World in the early 60's. His lists and the many lists I've seen since then are usually chronological order. To me this was hard to find if they used a particular aircraft. So I have used a alphabetical listing.
I started out in the early 60's with an interest in WW2 aircraft they went from biplanes to rocket planes. In my reading I'd hear about some smaller Air Force fighters attacking the bomber formations. I couldn't find anything about them. So I started compiling these lists, all from secondhand and non classified sources. Which is why a lot of wrong material is also in these lists. My best help has come from experts scratching out the bad entries in these lists. In these lists I've included a column for domestic aircraft so you can pick them out easily. I included the first flight date with the domestic column. "*54" says that this aircraft was produced by that country and first flown in 1954. I figured a first flight date would be a good benchmark for someone studying these lists. In one case I found a first flight date for one aircraft, in three different years. Which one was I too chose. I'm not an expert in any one country or aircraft. So over the years I've have tried too use what I consider the better sources for compiling these lists.
