I believe the consensus among historians who study that sort of thing is that Richthofen was brought down by ground fire, probably by a rifle shot. If true, that would add a note of irony to his story..the world famous lofty aerial warrior and high-born baron felled by a common, mud-splattered, and forever anonymous infantryman.

Don't ya love 'em ;-) In the 1980s, the Canadian ski team at the olympics and world cup, were known as the 'Crazy Canucks' because of their crazy speed down the slopes.

-Manfred Von Richthofen(The Red Baron) Richthofen was a highly experienced and skilled fighter pilot fully aware of the risk from ground fire.The Red Baron". Red was the color of his plane.Richthofen was killed just after 11 a.m. on April 21st, 1918. -Canadian Captain Arthur "Roy" Brown, brought down(The Red Baron). -Canadian destroyed 488 air force . -Pilots who shot down more then 5 Planes, would be a expert.

Manfred Albrecht Freiherr von Richthofen was the Red Baron. The 'Freiherr' is evidently a German title that literally means 'Free Lord', similar to that of the aristocratic title of Baron. Strangely he only made 20 of his 80 'kills' in the red Fokker Dr.1 triplane. Most of his kills were made in various models of Albatros. One, an Albatros D.III was the first aircraft he had painted red. - Isn't wikipedia just great for all this semi-useless info!!!

I think most people think the plane itself is called the "Red Baron" And not the pilot. I never really thought about it until I saw your comment about Lothar. Or am I way off also?

Actually, the white tail was Lothar's plane. A common mistake, though.
