World War I fighter pilot Albert Ball (August 14, 1896-May 7, 1917). At the time of his death in the skies over flying ace with forty-four victories in aerial combat.

This has been contested with the theory that Ball became disoriented during a maneuver in cloudy skies, suffering a form of temporary vertigo that has killed other pilots.
