    ========== HISTORIC FACT ==========
    Manfred Albrecht Freiherr von Richthofen, better known as the “Red Baron” was a fighter pilot with the German Air Service and was considered the ace-of-aces during World War I with 80 confirmed allied kills to his name.
    Originally a cavalryman, Richthofen transferred to the Air Service in 1915, became a member of Jagdstaffel 2 in 1916, and subsequently earned himself the Pour le Mérite in January of 1917 after his 16th confirmed air combat kill, the highest military honor in Germany at the time. That same month, he assumed command of Jagdstaffel 11 where he first painted his plane red becoming known among the Germans as Der Rote Kampfflieger (The Red Fighter Pilot). This led to the rest of his squadron also painting their planes some variation of red and eventually other Jagdstaffels adopted their own unique squadron colors.
    Richthofen led his new squadron to unparalleled success, peaking during “Bloody April” 1917 where he shot down 22 British aircraft, including 4 in a single day, and by the end of the month the British had lost 245 aircraft compared to the 66 German losses. In June Richthofen became the commander of Jagdgeschwader 1 the newly formed larger fighter wing comprised of Jagdstaffels 4, 6, 10, and 11, which would become widely known as “The Flying Circus” due to the wing’s brightly colored aircraft and mobility.
    On the 21st of April 1918, at the age of 25, in the skies over Morlancourt Ridge, Richthofen was fatally struck by a single British .303 round in the right side of his torso and through his heart while saving his cousin Lt. Wolfram von Richthofen from pursuing Canadian pilot Lieutenant Wilfrid "Wop" May, and in the last seconds of his life successfully managed to land his plane in a nearby field before succumbing to his wound.
    “Fight on and fly on to the last drop of blood and the last drop of fuel, to the last beat of the heart.” - Manfred von Richthofen
    ========= The Red Baron LYRICS =========
    Man and machine and nothing there in between
    A flying circus and a man from Prussia
    The sky and a plane, this man commands his domain
    The western front and all the way to Russia
    Death from above, you’re under fire
    Stained red as blood, he’s roaming higher
    Born a soldier from the horseback to the skies
    That’s where the legend will arise
    And he’s flying
    Higher, the king of the sky
    He’s flying too fast and he’s flying too high
    Higher, an eye for an eye
    The legend will never die
    First to the scene he is a lethal machine
    It’s bloody April and the tide is turning
    Fire at will it is the thrill of the kill
    Four in a day shot down with engines burning
    Embrace the fame, red squadron leader
    Call out his name Rote Kampfflieger
    In the game to win, a gambler rolls the dice
    80 allies paid the price
    Higher, the king of the sky
    He’s flying too fast and he’s flying too high
    He’s flying higher, an eye for an eye
    The legend will never die
    Born a soldier, from the horseback to the skies
    And the legend never dies
    And he’s flying
    And he’s flying
    And he’s flying

    Here’s the thing about men in different army’s. They all respect each other even though (in this case) they were fighting a brutal war. And giving someone respect when they die is something many soldiers did because after all they are still a human being

    The truly incredible thing about the man is, in WWI NO ONE really knew how to fly. Fatalities in training were more common than in combat. He was self taught, and when they offered him a better, upgraded plane? He turned it down.

      Kinda. He got that many kills because he worked strategically, every attack was well planned and well thought out except his last one, which got him killed. He wasn't as much a one man air force, what people think he was, as a very smart ace pilot

      If you aren't lying they lied to you, because nobody knows who shot the red baron down, except maybe the person who did it, but every soldier would want to be known as the man who killed the red baron, so everone would be boasting about it, making it impossible to find out who actually did it, especially now, over 100 years after it happened
