SEAC Aircraft Losses Database

If you look at the top right portion of the “Research Section” above on the home page, you will notice that the SEAC Aircraft Losses link is active.

This new section on the website – covers the Harvard and Hurricane Losses in the SEAC – in erstwhile India, Ceylon and Burma. The section is an evolution of the various aircraft losses databases that were hosted on some of my other websites – Warbirds of India and Bharat-Rakshak.com which hosted information on Indian Air Force WW2 losses. The section on this website includes all RAF aircraft.

Previous Update:

As of now about 1100+ Hurricane accidents (out of the 2500 inducted) and incidents are available and about 120 Harvard accidents (out of the 500 inducted). The intention is to identify all the pilots associated with these losses.

Harvard Losses : http://www.rafcommands.com/database/…qacid=10&qt=TY 120+ records
Hurricane Losses : http://www.rafcommands.com/database/…qacid=12&qt=TY 1100+ records

The data comes from a variety of sources – with thanks in no small measures to the Colin Cummings series – and the J J Halley books (RAF Serials and Aircraft Registries). Thanks in particular goes to the RAFCommands forum members who shared ORBs of SEAC Units to help populate more detail on these losses. So click on the above links and browse the data. The data is not complete and will keep getting updated at frequent intervals.
