The Red Baron, Manfred von Richthofen, was born on May 2, 1892 in Breslau, Germany (now Wroclaw Poland). He died on April 21, 1918 in the skies over Vaux sur Somme, France. He was 25 years old.
He was called der rote Kampfflieger (The Red Battle-Flyer) by his own people, le petit rouge by the French, and the Red Baron by the English.
In a time of wooden and fabric aircraft,
when twenty air victories insured a pilot legendary status and the
coveted Pour Le Mérite, Richthofen had eighty victories,
and is regarded to this day as the ace of aces.
"Out of curiosity your DR-1 was printed in color on green colored paper. I find the result quite pleasing." Bob Penikas.... Thanks Bob!
