I'd love to be able to give you a completely accurate answer, but am unable to at this time. From the information I've gathered, it appears that the United States' total aircraft losses in WWII were about 60,000. Roughly 45,000 of these would have been lost in combat theaters, and about 15,000 in training accidents in the US.
