Possibly my favorite plane of all time! The Sopwith Camel had more victories to its name than any other WWI fighter, if my memory serves me correctly. A Camel is suspected to have shot down Manfred von Richthofen, the infamous Red Baron. Let'* see how long it takes you guys to dig up the name of the pilot who was giving chase to von Richthofen when he went down.


Ready...... go!

Captain Roy Brown, Canadian baby :P

Although there is some ambiquity as to whether he was actually the one who delivered the fatal blow. Australia claims it was an Aussie troop on the ground.

Look at the photo credits and dates to figure out how 'young' I am. That was more than half way through my active duty time.
F4 proved itself in Vietnam along with this guy.

Ummmmmm, that'* an Apache (AH-64). They didn't come out until the early to mid 80'*...
(I helped test the Field Manuals for the wepons systems on them in 1983)

You're thinking of my bird, the AH-1 Cobra....

Right you are, sir! And I guess we'll never know who actually got him.

Is Roy Brown well-known in Canada for supposedly dispatching von Richthofen?
