It appears, Mick Mannock was the man of choice with his 61 victories scored by him before he was killed in the First World War.

Without looking at the computer, this is tough, you know. The Extra 200, 300L, 300, 300S, 330, 330SP?, 400 and the 500. I met Walter Extra at an airshow at the North Weald Aerodrome just outside of London. He is a very interesting fellow and he flies aerobatics himself.
