Manfred von Richthofen

Manfred Albrecht Freiherr von Richthofen (2 May 1892 -- 21 April 1918), widely known as the Red Baron, was a German fighter pilot with the Imperial German Army Air Service (Luftstreitkräfte) during World War I. He is considered the ace-of-aces of that war, being officially credited with 80 air combat victories, more than any other pilot.

Georges Guynemer

Georges Guynemer (24 December 1894 - 11 September 1917 missing) was a top fighter ace for France during World War I, and a French national hero at the time of his death.

Frank Luke

Frank Luke Jr. (May 19, 1897--September 29, 1918) was an American fighter ace, ranking second among U.S. Army Air Service pilots to Captain Eddie Rickenbacker in number of aerial victories during World War I (Rickenbacker was credited with 26 aerial victories, while Luke's official score was 18). Frank Luke was the first airman to receive the Medal of Honor. Luke Air Force Base, a U.S. Air Force pilot training installation since World War II, is named in his honor.
