Billy Bishop is officially credited with 72 victories, making him the top Canadian ace, and according to some sources, the top ace of the British Empire....

In my digital painting I am portraying Billy in his Nieuport 17 fighter which his mechanic painted the plane's nose blue after Billy shot down his 5th enemy plane...Blue nose was the mark of an ace...
