Adolf "Dolfo" Joseph Ferdinand Galland (19 Mar 1912 – 9 Feb 1996) was a German Luftwaffe general and flying ace redited with shooting down five or more enemy aircraft during aerial combat. He flew 705 combat missions, and fought on the Western and the Defense of the Reich fronts. On four occasions he survived being shot down, and he was credited with 104 aerial victories, all of them against the Western Allies.
Former enemies Adolf Galland and Robert Stanford Tuck chat while on a hunting trip during a lull in the production of the movie "The Battle of Britain." Both men were wing commanders and top aces within their respective air forces during the war. They became friends after the war and Tuck became godfather to Galland's son.
