    Some sources list Beurling with 32. I've even seen some say 29, but 31/32 seems to be the consencus. Those that say 29 I think are only counting the planes he downed while in RAF service. He also flew with the RCAF for a bit after that, where he apparently downed one or two more.

    Also there are some sources that list Franco Lucchini as the top scoring Italian ace.

    Then feel free to add the info to this thread. Considering what they had to work with, the Filipinos did an amazing job. Takes some real courage to face down a modern Japanese plane in a P-26!

    ok, Jesus Villamor, the first filipino ace, 5 planes shot down with a P-26.
    he hot down Zeroes and Bettys, thats what it said in an article, they named the main Philippine Airforce Base after him.

    Why is Marmaduke "Pat" Pattle's score always obscured?!? If he did have 50 kills at the time of his death, this shows that allied fighter pilots were definitely "on par" numbers-wise with the best of the Luftwaffe!!!
