There were 2800 Kamikaze pilots killed
A lot, aat least 5,000. But all pilots were potential kamikaze pilots.
Around 2000 kamikaze flights were mounted during World War II. They sank 40 US ships. 3,913 Japanese kamikaze pilot's died altogether.
Though the exact number will never be certain due to the difficulty in distinguishing a true suicide-attack from a pilot who chooses to steer his plane into an enemy target only once he has been disable, historians claim that approximately 4000 pilots sacrificed themselves in Kamikaze attacks against the Allies.
47 or 57 depending on who you read :)
About 20,000 American spitfire pilots died in WW2.
over 10,000 RAF pilots died in World War 2 70,000 RAF air crews and ground crews died
there were 100,000 RAF (royal air force) pilots in the World War II and 90,000 died in the war
Statistics say that there are 65,000-67,000 pilots world wide. (commercial pilots)
14,166. on allied powers , the central powers is unknown
30,000 on ground and in air combat
The suicide pilots were known as the kamikaze (Japanese for divine wind). Many of these pilots had no training in using bombs or torpedoes, as armaments and capable combat pilots were in short supply. It was comparatively easier to dive into ships with a plane having only one large explosive.
They do there are many pilots in the world to do the flights
There is no exact data as to how many airline pilots are in the world. There are an estimated 800,000 in the United States.
Many German pilots died in world war two I'm pretty sure no one is exactly for sure but there may be some one out there who does know and type any comments and if you have any corrections please make them thanks
498 royal air force pilots died in the battle of Britain
544 allied pilots and i don't know the stats for Luftwaffe
250 RAF pilots died in the Battle of Britain
There were 353 planes total used during the attack on Pearl Harbor. However, NONE OF THEM were kamikaze missions. Kamikaze missions did not begin until late in the war 1943-44 or later. However, there are some anecdotal accounts of planes crashing into ships during the Pearl Harbor attack, but these were not kamikaze pilots. Rather, some Japanese pilots decided that, if their planes were badly damaged and their lives were therefore to be lost anyway, then they would fly into an enemy target instead of diving into the sea. They did not have the intention of being kamikazes. Rather, they agreed to strike an enemy target instead of crashing into the ocean. For example, First Lieutenant Fusata Iida told his comrades that he planned to fly into a "worthy enemy target" if his plane was irreparably damaged and the alternative was to crash into the sea. Either way, he would be dead. This is very different from "kamikaze." Kamikaze missions sent pilots (well trained ones at that) into the air with the sole purpose of crashing into an enemy target. Kamikaze wasn't a last ditch effort on the part of a pilot who was going down anyway. Kamikaze pilots intended to commit suicide before taking off.
A pilot flew an air plane in World War 2, but there were many different reasons for the need of pilots; fighter pilots, transport pilots etc.
2000 Kamikaze of 7830 planes shot down
