In this study the achievement of fighter-pilot aces (measured as the number of victories) is compared to their fame (measured as the number of Google
hits). It turned out that the fame growth exponentially with achivement, leading to its unfair distribution. Manfred von Richthofen, commands 27% of
the search hits for all the aces in the study, though he’s only responsible for 1.6% of all the downed planes.
