    That's true. To compare that we need to do survival analysis and I'm afraid that we simply don't have the time till a crash data.

    ok, lets collect the pix we have:
    J-15 T Katapult.jpg J-15T prototype at CAT - original.jpg
    this could show two different catapult-planes, with different numbers (5x and x1) - for the number 5 we could suspect for a number of 5 cat-planes … could we?

    Does not it have to be called 5xx and xx1? Then 5x1 would be possible.

    Only 2 planes have suffered destructive crashes. The other 2 were bird strikes that ended up safely landing with the aircraft recovered.

    That comes out to roughly 1 in 20 for the J-15 and your math on the F-14 seems correct.

    But one should also account for total flight hours, and that stat is not publicly available.

    J-15T is a demonstrator. Period.
