The list shows all the aircraft types recorded on this website i.e. those who crashed in Belgium between May 1940 and May 1945.
Crashes frequently followed an attack by a fighter or damage by flak (German anti-aircraft defences).
In rarer cases, aircraft collided in flight or during taking off or landing (we have observed this happened especially at the beginning and the end of the War).
For many aircraft, we don't have any information concerning the circumstances of the crash. These we note as "presumed" hit by German fighter or by flak. We also note that the majority of RAF operations during the war took place at night.
