Eugeniusz Horbaczewski

Five of his confirmed victories took place over North Africa. He was killed in 1944 when 12 Polish fighters very successfully attacked a group of 60 German fighters, achieving 16 confirmed victories, one probable victory, and they damaged an additional three German planes (16 ---- 1 ---- 3). He was the only Polish loss in this spectacular engagement. He was posthumously promoted from Kapitan to Major.
