I believe Gunther Rall is still with us. What other Top Aces are still alive?

Re: Living Top German Aces

Could be wrong, but I have heard Beerenbrock is still alive.

Re: Living Top German Aces

Not to forget "Greenheart Hunter" Hans Ekkehard Bob, who is 87 years old and still flying his Jodel.

On the attached photo you see from the left to the right: Hajo Herrmann, Karl-Fritz Schlossstein 13./(Z) JG 5, Walter Schuck, Ernst Scheufele (JG 5) and H.E, Bob (JG 54).

Cheers, Horst
