The Red Baron – Manfred von Richthofen

with J.R. Williams

The fascinating story is told of one of the most respected and feared aircraft aces of World War I, the Red Baron.   He was not an exceptional pilot, but a cunning hunter who learned to accommodate to the best possible advantage the strengths and weaknesses of the fragile aircraft he flew.   This talk complements the recent unveiling of the museum’s new custom-built replica of the famous Fokker Dr.1 triplane, flown by the Red Baron.
