Red Baron Historical Study Notes:

Manfred von Richthofen, the "ace of aces," managed 80 confirmed kills over World War I Europe, peaking during the "Red April" of 1917 when he racked up an incredible 22 victories. Then Britain's Sopwith Triplane appeared over the horizon, and suddenly the Red Baron was put to the ultimate test: gunsight-to-gunsight combat with a vastly superior aircraft.

In July of 1917, Manfred von Richthofen - the Red Baron - tangles with Sopwith Camels in the skies over Belgium.

Speed: 115 mph at sea level
Initial climb: 1200 feet/min at 60 mph
Power: 110 hp Oberusal Rotary
Weight: 1290 lbs loaded
Wing area:  200 sq ft

The Fokker Dr-1 Triplane was the most well known of the WW1 airplanes.  It was slow and difficult to fly yet it deadly in the hands of an experienced pilot.  This is the plane was flown by the famous Baron Manfred Von Richthofen.  One of the flight features of this airplane was that it was able to momentarily hang on its prop and shoot straight up into the belly of its enemies airplane.

the Sopwith Camel flown by Capt. Roy Brown when he chased Baron Manfred von Richthofen over the Somme on April 21, 1918 - the flight from which the famous "Red Baron" did not return.

The Camel was perhaps the best Allied fighter of WWI, successfully downing 1,924 aircraft in only 16 months of fighting. It was known for being extremely agile and for having a fast rate of climb, and perhaps most notably, the great Baron von Richthofen fell to the guns of a 209 Squadron RAF Camel flown by Canadian Roy Brown in 1918
