Good video, only thing is Richthofen wasn't dead when his Red Fokker Dr. I stopped, he died moments after Allied Troops got to him. One of the History programs I watched had one of the Soldiers at the crash scene in the early 90s' talk about the scene and what happened. He said Richthofen's last words were," kaputt, " or," Finished, " before the Ace of the Aces took his last breath on this world.

R.I.P Richthofen ~ Jagdstaffel 16 Squadron Commander,

Oberst Wolfgang von Klouse.

That's an urban legend, Klouse. If you saw that red triplane moments after it crashed, wouldn't you want to give a more interesting story than just stating you saw a bloody mess in the cockpit? Richthofen died 20-30 seconds after suffering his mortal wound, ruling out the possibility of Allied soldiers finding him alive after crashing his bird.

And BTW, nice job guys, another 2 year old thread back to life! How's about we find that thread that says "RoF: ICE is on the shelves" and revive that!
