Aircraft Accident Information This site contains a database for civil and commercial airline crashes, as well as military transport accidents with 10 or more fatalities, and military airship accidents involving fatalities dating back to 1920.

I found another interesting site with ejection and bale-out statistics dating back 1910.

The Virtual Vietnam Archive

The Vietnam Center and Archive is a fantastic site for looking up a whole host of documents relating to the Vietnam War. I can't even begin to adequately describe everything that is in there, but for starters, it has a huge amount of operational reports, unit histories, and various other primary sources to peruse. The one drawback is that is so huge it can sometimes be overwhelming. But if you can learn to tailor what you are looking for, you will often be rewarded with valuable information.
