I think the war in the air is more comparable with sports, your opponent is of course the enemy, but you're not supposed to hate him to the bone, victory in sports is winning, winning in the air usually means death to the opponent, but that was commonly accepted among pilots, it was war after all. At the least you could say that there was more respect in the air than on the ground.
