LONDON, April 8.- (A') --Capt. Don
S. Gentile's claim of five planes de-
stroyed on the ground on April 5 was
confirmed today while he was blast-
ing three more Nazi planes out of the
sky to run his bag to 30, and the
Piqua, O., Mustang pilot became the
first American ace of this war for-
mally recognized as having broken
Capt. Eddie Rickenbacker's World
War record.
The confirmations brought his of-
ficial total to 27, of which seven were
destroyed on the ground and 20 in
the air. The three destroyed today
are still to be formally confirmed.
Rickenbacker destroyed 26 enemy,

aircraft in the last war, all in air
combat, a mark which was equalled
by two Marine fliers in the Pacific in
this war.
Confirmation of his claim came
shortly before he returned from to-
day's mission with a triple kill to be
a guest of honor at a celebration at
his base.
He was one of several American
fighter pilots claiming triples today
as aerial fleets of fighter-escorted
U.S. heavy and medium bombers
ripped Brunswick's plane factories
and airdromes in northwestern Ger-
many and Belgium.
