the Red Baron died today
It was many years ago, in the first quarter of the 20th Century, 1917.
Of the few who become fighter pilots, fewer still become aces. Manfred von Richthofen (The Red Baron) had 80 kills, Propsby Mcguire of the United States Air Force had 38, Otto Kittle of the Luftwaffe had 267. All of these aces were successful because they applied tactics that were based on their strengths and their enemy’s weaknesses; they fought on their terms and took the battle to the enemy. They also all have one other thing in common; they were all killed before the wars end. You cannot afford to let your guard down, and you certainly can never go against your own advice.
