well I hate to be predictable, but probably frank luke's "hat in the ring" livery.

It'll have to be light, as the wings are closer together than they should be for proper lift efficiency. they were fast planes. oh yeah and they they looked cool

Believe Luke served in the 27th Aero Squadron, while Eddie Rickenbacker served in the 94th Aero Squadron (Hat In The Ring). Both those squadrons were part of the 1st Pursuit Group.

Either of their beautiful aircraft would be a great choice!

oh crap, I did get the two pilots mixed up didn't I !

Well I always was better with the german pilots, sad as it may seem

I believe eddie was the smarter pilot. Frank was more of a loose canon, but fearless none the less.
