Brig. Gen. Billy MitchellBrig. Gen. Billy Mitchell
Brig. Gen. Billy Mitchell

Brig. Gen. Billy Mitchell may be the most famous and controversial figure in American airpower history. Gaining a commission due to the intervention of his father, he joined the Army Signal Corps. He gradually became excited about aviation and, in 1916, at age 38, he took private flying lessons. Recognized as the top American combat airman of World War I (he was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross, the Distinguished Service Medal, and several foreign decorations), Mitchell, nevertheless managed to alienate most of his superiors during his 18 months in France. His relations with superiors continued to sour after he returned from the war, when he criticized the War and Navy departments for lacking farsight about airpower. He was court-martialed, found guilty of insubordination, and suspended from active duty without pay for five years. Mitchell resigned instead, as of Feb. 1, 1926, and spent the next decade writing and speaking about airpower. Mitchell died of a variety of ailments, including a heart condition and influenza, on Feb. 19, 1936.

Feb. 10, 1952: Two-war ace Maj. George A. Davis Jr. engaged 12 MiG-15s

Maj. George Andrew Davis Jr. was a P-47 fighter ace in the Pacific theater in World War II, with seven air-to-air victories. In October 1951, he went to Korea as commander of the 334th Fighter Squadron. Within a few months, he became the leading ace of the Korean War. On Feb. 10, 1952, Davis and his wingman encountered 12 MiG-15s approaching friendly fighter-bombers on an interdiction mission. Davis sped into combat and quickly destroyed two MiGs. While pursuing a third MiG, his aircraft sustained a direct hit and crashed. At his death, he had 14 victories in Korea, making him the fourth leading ace in the Korean War. He was posthumously promoted to lieutenant colonel in 1953, and awarded the Medal of Honor in 1954 for the Feb. 10, 1952 action.
