The Republic of Korea Air Force (RoKAF) has lost 35 combat aircraft to accidents since 2000, national media reported on 21 October.
An air force report submitted to parliament for an annual audit revealed that the losses, made up of mainly ageing and soon-to-be retired airframes, resulted in the deaths of 38 pilots and one mechanic, the Yonhap News Agency disclosed.
According to the report, the vast majority of the accidents were the result of pilot error, with poor maintenance and technical problems making up the remainder. Aircraft types lost included the ageing McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II and Northrop F-5 Tiger II.
The release of the air force report came just a day after the RoKAF returned its F-5's to flight status after a post-crash investigation found that an aircraft lost in late September had been poorly maintained.
