NOTES 1. During September 1947 the classification of bombardment aircraft types was changed to better reflect the tactical operating radius of the types that were in service at that time. A table of classification changes can be seen by clicking the button below. Classification changes resulted in significant adjustments to the numbers of surplus aircraft included in the tables above.
