ABSTRACT
Raoel Lufbery, America's No.1 World War I Ace pilot, was patient, cautious and almost always flew alone. He seemed invincible in the air, scoring one kill after another against the Germans, making him the top pilot in World War I's famed Lafayette Escadrille. He was killed in a plane crash on May 19, 1918, after a premonition of death.
