When I stopped in at the War Museum for Canada Day, I went through the permanent exhibits, which I've featured before, but also stopped in at the temporary exhibit currently being displayed. It covers the air war during the First World War, with models, artifacts, art, and panels on personalities done in what's basically a graphic novel format. The exhibit also includes a rebuilt Sopwith Pup plane of the era. The battle in the air during that war constituted a completely new form of warfare, where young pilots were inventing tactics literally at the spur of the moment.
One of the panels, which I didn't photograph, featured Manfred von Richthofen, remembered by history as the Red Baron. It was a Canadian pilot, Roy Brown, involved in the Baron's final duel; there is controversy to this day as to who actually downed the Baron- was it Brown or Australian infantry firing from the ground? Another panel mentioned the Baron landing to see if a downed Canadian pilot he'd just bested was all right. However his death, it was probably for the best- had von Richthofen survived the war, he surely would have been a propaganda tool for the Nazis in the Second World War. This way his legacy, honour, and reputation were never tarnished- and his long feud with Snoopy The World War I Flying Ace could proceed unhindered.
