US Fixed Wing Aircraft Losses of the Vietnam War 1962-­1973

During the Vietnam War, thousands of U.S. aircraft were lost to antiaircraft artillery (AAA), surface­-to-­air missiles (SAMs), and fighter interceptors (MiG)s. The great majority of U.S. combat losses in all areas of Southeast Asia were to AAA. Among fixed­wing aircraft, more F-­4 Phantoms were lost than any other type in service with any nation. In total, the United States military lost in Vietnam almost 10,000 aircraft and helicopters.
