Erich Loewenhardt


German flying ace with 54 victories, the 3rd highest during the First World War, behind only Manfred von Richthofen and Ernst Udet. His awards include the Iron Cross (both classes), Knight's Cross with Swords of the House Order of Hohenzollern, Pour le Mérite, and Austro-Hungarian Military Merit Cross.

He died in action on 10 August 1918, over Chaulnes, France. In the aftermath of aerial combat, he collided with another German pilot, Leutnant Alfred Wenz from Jasta 11. Loewenhardt's Fokker's landing gear slammed the upper right wing on Wenz's D.VII. Both pilots' planes were equipped with parachutes and both pilots bailed out. Erich Loewenhardt's chute failed to open and he fell to his death.
