The following is a very rare piece of film, 100 years old. It shows
Baron Von Richthofen, doing an external
prior to a mission, as well as his putting on a flying suit prior to
flight in cold weather. If you look close you
will notice Hermann Goering.

The Baron was shot down on 21 April 1918 by Roy Brown of the Royal
Navy Air Services, a prelude of the
R.A.F. The Aussie's also claim that one of their machine gunners on
the ground shot the Baron down. UK &
Aussie Doctors, after the autopsy stated that the fatal bullet was
shot from above.

The author of this has been very involved as a Director of the Roy
Brown  Museum, in Carleton Place, the
home town of Roy. Many letters have been written over the past 3-4
years, and finally Roy Brown was inducted
into Canada's Aviation Hall of Fame on 4 June 2015.

To think this film almost 100 years old!  If you're interested in
history or aviation, you cannot miss this footage.
It was just posted online, and I've never seen anything like it. It's
from 1917, and it's an up-close and personal
look at the most legendary combat pilot who ever lived, the infamous
Red Baron, Manfred Von Richthofen.
Watch the extremely rare, extremely old footage and re-live history.
ULTRA-RARE footage of the most famous
fighter pilot ever
