The Red Baron

German fighter pilot Manfred von Richthofen, known as the Red Baron, prepares for a combat flight in this rare video footage filmed during World War One. According to the video description on YouTube the plane shown is a Fokker Dr.1 and this was filmed in September of 1917. At the end of the video a British pilot who was captured when the Red baron shot down his Sopwith biplane is shown. There is no sound with this video so just enjoy the vintage film as is.
