|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.

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
