    For my money - the two best fighter pilots of WWII;

    1.) **** Bong

    2.) Robert Johnson

    BTW, why Bob Johnson and not Gabreski ?

    I'm not dissin' the accomplishments of anyone else including the great German aces. I think I admire Johnson because of the physical abilities he seemed to have that no one else had. And, he was a loner. He got in trouble with Gabreski on more than one occasion for being a "lone wolf".
    Check the link below and it will become apparent that this question is not as straightforward as it might seem.
