top aces of their plane type who died in aviation without combat

Good evening Gentlemen,

such a high percentage of aces died an airmen's death without combat. I compiled a list of those who met that fate and who were the top ace of their plane type, respectively. I didn't include car accidents, MIA or collisions with comrades during combat missions. Enjoy!
