Flown by Maj. Richard I. Bong

40 kills, America's Ace of aces was a actually a poor shot but made up for it in his flying skills. Bong flew his P-38 so close that it was almost impossible to miss. This is how he downed the enemy. On Dec 12, 1944, Bong was awarded the Medal of Honor by Gen. Douglas MacArthur and married his sweetheart, Marge Vattendahl 5 days later. Sadly, he was killed while testing a new P-80 jet on 6 Aug. 1945.
