Total US aircraft losses exceeded 45,000 aircraft. Also, check here:, specifically the chart fourth to the bottom.

What is the Aircraft Tail Number?

The "Tail Number" of an aircraft is another name for the aircraft registration number. Every a/c has to be registered with a unique number for several reasons. It helps people identify it and this is important for operation around an airport. It is also important so that someone can report a violation. For aircraft registered in the US, the tail number will begin with an "N". This is followed by 5 numerals and/or letters. Each country will have a registration number that begins with a different letter or pair of letters. It is commonly referred to as "tail number" because the number is usually painted on the vertical tail or on the tail boom. In the US, this is also referred to as the "N number". Also, you can not just paint an aircraft in military colors and insignia. Only antique aircraft can be painted in such a manner. Custermen With military aircraft, the tail number is referred to as a Serial Number (Army and Air Force), or a Bureau of Aeronautics Number (Navy and Marine Corps.) The number stems from a contract established by the US Government and the aircraft manufacturer. The airplanes are assigned a number prior to its construction and may be cancelled by the government. Some manufacturers assign a Serial Number to an aircraft as it goes through production. They may also have a Production Numberthat is used to define the final version of the aircraft during its production. (Douglas called this the Fuselage Number). The Tail Number usually refers to the Registration number that is prodominately painted on the Tail. For military aircraft the number painted on the tail is usually the Year followed by the aircraft number.
