The Korean War was the first war in which jet aircraft played a central role. Once-formidable fighters such as the F4U Corsair relinquished their air superiority roles to a new generation of faster jet fighters. Within these pages are listed more than 1,140 U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps and Military Air Transport Service (MATS) aircraft lost during the Korean War. These aircraft were spread across 19 different ships, 126 different squadrons, by 12 aircraft manufacturers building nearly 60 different types and variants to fly into war. The information on dates lost, aircraft type and manufacturer, Bureau Numbers, ship or base assigned, squadron attached, and fate of the pilot and crew, are here. Chapter 1 is a subset of all the information organized by ship attached; Chapter 2 is a subset organized by squadron attached; Chapter 3 is the entire set organized by manufacturer and variant with stories attached to some of the specific aircraft lost.

In 1922 the US Navy commissioned its first small experimental aircraft carrier. This was followed into service by two much larger and capable carriers in 1927 with five more being built prior to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor including three large Yorktown class.??To take the offensive against the Japanese Navy, the American Congress funded by far the largest carrier building programme in history based on the Essex class, a larger version of the pre-war Yorktown vessels. Of the twenty-six ordered, fourteen were commissioned in time to see Second World War service. These were joined by many smaller classes of carriers, including light carriers and escort carriers.?Post-war ever larger and more capable carriers were commissioned. Since 1975, when the first of a fleet of ten nuclear-powered Nimitz class carriers was commissioned, they have epitomized United States superpower status and worldwide power projection. These are due to be replaced in the decades to come with the even more sophisticated nuclear-powered Gerald R. Ford class.??Compiled and written by Michael Green, Aircraft Carriers of the United States Navy contains superb images of all the different types of classes of carriers employed by the US Navy since 1922. These and its highly informative text and captions give the reader a broad overview of this fascinating subject.
