Luftwaffe. RAF is the only competitor here to my mind, but RAF's formatations sucked. In early part of the war they were still flying in WW1 era vic -s
Later they improved their formatations in Battle of Britan, but German line up was still better. Luftwaffe called the new RAF formatation Idiotenreihe  ;D

And it's pointless to add Russian and Italian airforces. They both sucked deeply. Russians outnumbered Germans like 2-3 times yet they managed to get their asses owned. Their pilot skill was not existing. Luftwaffe command discovered that it is impossible to transfer pilots from eastern front to western front because pilots had become so lazy fighting the Russians that they kept forgetting things like to check your back once in a while.

And I won't even talk about Italians. To my mind their military spendings are a useless waist. In the entire WW1 they managed to win only one battle. Erwin Rommel in WW1 commanded 100 men against 7000 Italians and won. He took alot of prisoners.
