Ace vs. Ace

Since my Verifiable Victories project came a cropper. Let me ask a less demanding question.
What Ace vs. Ace encounters are you aware of:

Here are a few I can think of off the top of my head:

Lothar Von Richthofen (40) vs. Albert Ball (44) –head on passes –Lothar crash landed near Balls wreck –Ball KIA in controversial circumstances –probably damage/Thunder cloud windsheer/Vertigo/Pilot Error combo. –Germans sealed the deal in giving Lothar credit for the victory by putting a few (more?) holes in Balls fuselage –Ball crushed –no battle wounds.

Sailor Malan (32) vs. Werner Mölders (115) –Mölders WIA BoB
Helmut Wick (56) vs. John Dundas (13) vs. Rudolf Pflanz (52) BoB -28 Nov 40
Hans-Ulrich Rudel (9 Aircraft & 519 Tanks) vs. Col. Lev Shestakov (26) – Mar 44 Shestakov was KIA shooting at Rudel in Ground level pursuit –he was either shot down by Rudel’s gunner or got caught the Ju-87’s wash and stalled into ground.
