    Triple-Ace in a Day
    To achieve this a pilot must have destroyed 15 enemy aircraft in a single day. This has been achieved by only four pilots, all from the-Luftwaffe.



    1. -Emil Lang-shot down 18 Soviet fighters on 3 November 1943.

    2. -Hans-Joachim Marseille-was credited with downing 17 Allied fighters in just three sorties over-North Africa-on 1 September 1942. -10 of those claims have been connected to actual Allied losses that day.

    3. -August Lambert-shot down 17 Soviet aircraft on a single day in 1944.

    4. -Hubert Strassl-shot down 15 Soviet aircraft on 5 July 1943 near Orel.
