Ace Of Aces

Because I record my missions in loving detail from Strike Fighters...

My current pilot has shot down five enemy aces!

Three in 1956 in an F-100D and now two more in 1962 in an F-104C.

All five are guns kills.

Update:

You know they're aces because their names are displayed rather than the plane type.
