Wikipedia has a list of all the the war-aces. Does this help?: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flying_ace#Arab-Israeli_Wars

Wikipedia is fast becoming the only website that I care about anymore lately. It reminds me of when I was a kid and I used to amuse myself by reading through the Funk & Wagnalls.

Fun Fact: There was not one single black family in America during the 1970s that did not own a set of Funk & Wagnall's encyclopedias. Many families were missing a volume or two from the set, so you could learn everything except for stuff starting with R or something, but every family had one.

Strange - for some reason my response to you from this morning is gone...

Anyway, what I said was that the list on Wiki is far from complete. There were many more than 3 IAF aces in all of the Arab-Israeli wars - the IAF had a shoot-down ratio of over 70:1. Goria Epstein, however, I should have mentioned, since he is the top "modern" ace of the world (where "modern" means all planes shot down are jets).

hmmm... never got email about it. that's weird. Maybe there was an LJ server hiccup or something.

Anyway, that's the great thing about wikipedia. All you have to do is register an account there and you can correct the page. Go for it.

No, more than likely I wrote out the whole thing, then quite Safari before hitting "post comment". Wouldn't be the first time.

As for correcting that page - I'm in grad school. I don't have time to do the research necessary to get it right. Well, assuming I want to pass my classes. :)

In fact, what the hell am I doing reading LJ?

Because I'm totally as educational as any silly old classes... tell your professor that you couldn't study because you were discussing the deep meaningful cultural nuances of the jewish warrior in the media. I'm sure he'll be impressed.
