Does the U.S. Navy have more planes than the U.S. Air Force?

Answer

According to the official Navy website and the U.S. Air Force Almanac put out by Air Force Magazine, the U.S. Air Force has more planes than the U.S. Navy. The Army, Marine Corps and Coast Guard also maintain a relatively small number of fixed-wing aircraft.

As of Sept. 30, 2012, the USAF Almanac listed the total amount of aircraft in service in the Air Force at 5,551. As of May 27, 2014, the regularly updated "status of the Navy" webpage listed the number of operational aircraft at 3,700 plus. In addition to planes, both branches of the service maintain a fleet of helicopters and unmanned surveillance aircraft.
