    Ty Flyboyj.

    added utility transport utility planes.

    i've ended if some is interessed to other planes (Hospital, Ambulance, Trainer) tell me i look for the model you want.

    i'm going to build the list with only with planes assigned to squadrons/unit (since 14/4/44 in the list there are plane with POOL as unit i think this planes were write off not actual accident).
    some can help with this identifications ( all in the unit column)
    AROU-2
    ACORN-30 PL
    SERVRON variois numbers
    AA RH
    COMAIRPAC
    A.A.
    CASU with or w/o -F various numbers

    i think that all planes "losses" from this are more easily write off some can help?

    Only loss in squadron or other units i think were combat unit, only combat planes (fighters, bombers, scout, patrol) need a few time to complete.

    I sent them an email. I don’t know if I’ll get a reply. In the meantime, I have some research for you, on all but two (“AA RH” and “A.A.”). Here we go...

    AROU-2 = Aviation Repair and Overhaul Unit 2
    Clarence James Rives Jrt.

    ACORN-30 = Aviation Construction Ordinance Radar Naval 30
    ACORN - Aviation Construction Ordinance Radar Naval.

    SERVRON = Service Squadron
    ServRon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

    CASU = Carrier Aircraft Service Unit
    CASU(F) = Carrier Aircraft Service Unit (Forward)

    "When originally organized, the CASU was set up to handle carrier type of aircraft only, hence the name Carrier Aircraft Service Unit. However, in the forward areas the CASUs found themselves working on all types of aircraft, even working on some of the Army's fighters and bombers. Recently, the CASUs of the forward areas had their designations changed to Combat Aircraft Service Unit (F), the "F" standing for Forward. In the same shift, some of the PATSUs had their designations changed to CASU(F)." Quoted from: 68 - This is CASU - WWII Archives.

    POOL = The POOLs were just wings of various spare aircraft stationed at various stations and when they weren’t deployed to specific squadrons they remained at the station in basically a guardian role. These .pdf files should give you some idea of what those consisted of:
