About Manfred von Richthofen
Manfred von Richtofen, known as “The Red Baron,” was a German ace fighter pilot during World War One.
Richtofen held the title of Freiherr, or “Free Lord,” and he most often flew a red painted fighter plane. Thus, he was called “The Red Baron” by many.
Considered the ace-of-aces of the war, Richtofen was officially responsible for 80 air combat victories. He first was the leader of the fighter squadron Jasta 11, and later the larger group Jagdgeschwader 1, or “The Flying Circus.” While flying over northern France in 1918, Richtofen was shot and killed by a British .303 round.
