    Enlighten me, but wouldn't Stanislav Skalski be the first allied ace since he downed more than five planes in the battle of Poland?
    (he also later flew for RAF)

    "In September 1939, Skalski reached "ace status", by personally downing 6 German aircraft (1 Ju 86, 2 Do 17, 1 Ju 87, 2 Hs 126), plus 1 Hs 126 shared with another pilot. Furthermore, he damaged another three planes (1 Bf 109, 1 Hs 126, 1 Ju 87). Skalski flew his last sortie with his P-11c on 16 September. The next day he fled the country, as did several other Polish pilots, to Rumania, and from there to fight in France and England. "

    Outstanding gentelmen { and or Ladies off course } The NZ pilot i had heard of only marginally and the polish pilot i had never heard of. More unsung hero's from the counless ranks of unsung hero's.
