Airplanes are more my forte'...

I am not sure how to even search for this sort of thing (person) Ernie, but I have had a few concussions, so that don't help either...
Any tips, for a more effective method of figuring these things out? (lookin under rocks ain't workin')

Paul Wilhelm Bäumer, German Air Ace. After the war, Bäumer worked briefly in the dockyards before he became a dentist, and reportedly one of his patients, Erich Maria Remarque, used Bäumer's name for the protagonist of his antiwar novel All Quiet on the Western Front.
The Aircraft he died in was a Rohrbach Ro IX designed by Kurt Tank.

That's the man, SimonCraig1 and you are up, Sir. Googling "ace + dental assistant" yields his name, as does "WWI ace + parachute". The Iron Eagle was quite a pilot. Thanks; Ernie P.

Answer: Paul Baumer, (The Iron Eagle)

Paul Wilhelm Bäumer (11 May 1896 – 15 July 1927) was a German fighter ace in World War I.
Bäumer was born on 11 May 1896 in Duisburg, Germany. He was a dental assistant before World War I, and earned a private pilot's license by Summer 1914.
At the start of the war, he joined the 70th Infantry Regiment. He served in both France and Russia, being wounded in the arm in the latter. He then transferred to the air service as a dental assistant before being accepted for military pilot training.
By October 1916, he was serving as a ferry pilot and instructor at Armee Flugpark 1. On 19 February 1917, he was promoted to Gefreiter. On 26 March, he was assigned to Flieger Abteilung 7; he was promoted to Unteroffizier on the 29th.
On 15 May 1917, he was awarded the Iron Cross Second Class. He subsequently received training on single-seaters, consequently being posted to fighter duty. Bäumer joined Jagdstaffel 5 on 30 June 1917, scoring three victories as a balloon buster in mid-July before going to the elite Jasta Boelcke.
Bäumer claimed heavily, reaching 18 victories by year end. He was commissioned in April 1918. On 29 May Bäumer was injured in a crash, breaking his jaw, and he returned to the Jasta in September. With the arrival of the Fokker D.VII he claimed even more success, including 16 in September. Nicknamed "The Iron Eagle", he flew with a personal emblem of an Edelweiss on his aircraft. He was one of the few pilots in World War I whose lives were saved by parachute deployment, when he was shot down in flames in September. He received the Pour le Mérite shortly before the Armistice and was finally credited with 43 victories, ranking ninth among German aces.
After the war, Bäumer worked briefly in the dockyards before he became a dentist, and reportedly one of his patients, Erich Maria Remarque, used Bäumer's name for the protagonist of his antiwar novel All Quiet on the Western Front.
Continuing his interest in flying, he founded his own aircraft company in Hamburg. Bäumer died in an air crash at Copenhagen on 15 July 1927, age 31, while test flying a Rohrbach Ro IX fighter.

I am not sure how to even search for this sort of thing (person) Ernie, but I have had a few concussions, so that don't help either...
Any tips, for a more effective method of figuring these things out? (lookin under rocks ain't workin')
Okay, Buddy; for you the next one will be all about an airplane. Thanks; Ernie P.

Thought I had one there (DWI Wellington) but a search on the thread showed it had already been quizzed. I'll post another soon.

I'm looking for an Airplane:

1. Twin engine.
2. Two distinct variants were built and other variants were modifications to the original aircraft after it was retired from it's primary role.

I'll throw out the B-25...the J and H being the two best known versions, then after the war it became the TB-25N multi-engine trainer.

A-3 Skywarrior/B-66 Destroyer, both were attack bombers with variants as an electronic countermeasures platform, airborne refueling tanker, cargo plane, VIP transport and, after being retired, a fire tanker

Wow seriously good guesses guys, what can I say except neither is the one I'm looking for....

I'm looking for an Airplane:

1. Twin engine.
2. Two distinct variants were built and other variants were modifications to the original airframe after it was retired from it's primary role.
3. It used turbo-props for thrust.
4. The standard version had a crew of three.
