From 12 O'Clock High!:

Ju52 losts in Crete/Stalingrad? Which is correct?
Mon Apr 22 07:36:53 2002

From most of the Luftwaffe books, the Ju52/3m lost in Crete reached the number of 271, and the number in Stalingrad was 266.

But from E.R.Hooton's 'Eagle in Flames', Luftwaffe lost 121 transports in Crete (total aircraft lost was 259), and in Stalingrad 174 Ju52/3m were lost (total aircraft lost was 279).

If both numbers (Hooton's and other sources) were correct, does this mean the higher numbers (271 and 266) include damaged ones? Or among the above numbers some were heavily damaged but able to repair some time later?

Thanks in advanced.
