Hello to all :D; a complement........................................

Two of them.

Leutnant Kurt Wintgens (August 1, 1894 - September 25, 1916). He was the first fighter pilot to achieve a victory over an adversary plane with a monoplane (Fokker Eindecker) armed with a synchronized machine gun Parabellum MG14.

Leutnant Max Ritter von Mulzer (July 9, 1893 - September 26, 1916). He was the first Bavarian combat ace, the first Bavarian ace with the Pour le Merite and the first Bavarian knight for his exploits.

Hello to all :D; more........................................

Leutnant Otto Parschau (11 November 1890 – 21 July 1916).

He was a German World War I Flying Ace and recipient of the Pour le Mérite, Royal House Order of Hohenzollern, and Iron Cross, First Class. Parschau and Leutnant Kurt Wintgens were the pilots chosen to fly the prototype of the revolutionary Fokker Eindecker fighter plane with a machine gun synchronized to fire safely through its propeller arc via use of a gun synchronizer.
