Artist's Description

In the Museum of Australian Army Flying (Oakey QLD) there is a remnant which is believed to be from the underside of the lower wing of the Fokker DR1 triplane flown by the famous “Red Baron” Rittmeister Manfred von Richthofen.

Manfred von Richthofen was shot down as he flew over Australian trenches on the 21st April, 1918. An autopsy determined that he was killed by a single bullet fired from a machine gun in the trenches.

His body was recovered from the crashed Fokker by members of No. 3 Squadron of the Australian Flying Corps. He was buried with full military honours in the small French cemetary on 22nd April 1918.
After the war his body was exhumed and reburied in the family cemetary in Germany.
