Red Baron Historical Study Notes:

Albatros D.Va the Red Baron's "forgotten" fighter

Introduced over the western front in August 1917, the Fokker Triplane soon became  the favorite plane of Germany's greatest WWI ace, Baron Manfred von Richthofen. 

Baron Von Richthofen was the most celebrated of the German Aces.  He shot down a total of 80 planes.  He won the Blue Max Air Medal on Jan 12 1917.  The Barron was Killed in Action on on April 21 1918 by Captain A. Roy Brown, from Canada, flying a Sopwith Camel

Richthofen was part of the JG-1 Fighter Wing which on March 1918 as part of Ludendorff’s massive  thrust very nearly decided the war.

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 Fokker D.VII is widely regarded as the best German aircraft of the war and was first test-flown by Manfred von Richthofen, the Red Baron.

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

Jasta 11.

The Fokker Dr.I triplane gained fame for being the aircraft in which 80-victory ace Manfred von Richthofen, the legendary "Red Baron," achieved his last 17 victories before being killed on April 21, 1918.

from 1918: Manfred von Richthofen - the "Red Baron" (80 victories, JG 1), Josef Jacobs (48, Jasta 7), Rudolf Klimke (17, Jasta 27) and Hermann Göring (22, Jasta 27).

April 20, 1918. Baron Manfred Von Richthofen was his flying Fokker Dr.1 on early evening patrol, had already shot down one Sopwith Camel when he found his 80th victim flying another Sopwith Camel flown by Lieutenant D. G. Lewis, 19 years old.  Lewis' plane was on fire all the way to the ground,  amazingly he was thrown clear of the burning  wreckage and survived the crash.

Manfred von Richthofen, the legendary Red Barron, made history in the Great War  with his red Fokker airplane. Introduced in June 1917, it was the most maneuverable aircraft of the time.

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.
