The best? Heinz Bar. Consider: he flew in the Phoney War, Battle of Britain and then Russia. Brought out to the Middle East and then, due to stomach ulcers, refused to fly and was sent back to Germany 'in disgrace'. Then flew against the US heavies and finally flew jets. I think that none of the others quoted had this kind of experience. He was simply brilliant at everything he did, flew 1939 - 1945 and survived. What a guy!
