Well, i bought a magazine about aircraft yesterday, and in the questions section of the magazine, was this same question (How many aircraft had been build in the history?), the magazine answered that the number couldn´t be determinated with presition, but the number gets close to 320,000 aircrafts, "GAMA" says. and that 219,000 of the total number were build in the USA.
320,000 aircraft is the history of like....man? I would have thought it was more than that... but then again, that is quite a huge number! hehe
A large number, i am not sure if the magazine refers to aircraft ever build or in service.
that is a lot of airplanes.
But it is not comparable to the 600 millon aircraft build... 🙂
