Also see . . .  The Arizona Balloon Buster. Winner of the Congressional Medal of Honor, America's second ranking ace in World War One, Frank Luke epitomized the reckless, undisciplined, loner image of a fighter pilot. He went after the toughest targets, heavily defended German observation balloons. (Submitted on February 17, 2010, by Bill Kirchner of Tucson, Arizona.)
