    "Nungessor" in title, body text and tags should read NIngesser (Charles Nungesser).

    Nungesser was a WWI fighter ace who scored a remarkable 43 aerial victories. In the course of the war, however, he suffered QUITE a few injuries, with his medical record reading as follows......

    "Skull fracture, brain concussion, internal injuries (multiple), five fractures of the upper jaw, two fractures of lower jaw, piece of anti-aircraft shrapnel imbedded in right arm, dislocation of knees (left and right), re-dislocation of left knee, bullet wound in mouth, bullet wound in ear, atrophy of tendons in left leg, atrophy of muscles in calf, dislocated clavicle, dislocated wrist, dislocated right ankle, loss of teeth, contusions too numerous to mention".

    Nungesser went missing on 8 May 1927. No wreckage or remains have ever been found.

    CLARIFICATION: In my first paragraph above, the name should read Charles Nungesser.
