Decendants of the Red Barion
Decendants of the Red Baron, F-86 of JG71
In 1961, the first fighter wing of the new German Federal Luftwaffe, led by the famous Ace of Aces Colonel Erich Hartmann, was named JG 71 “Richthofen” after another wellknown German fighter ace, the Red Baron Manfred Freiherr von Richthofen. This aviation art print by Heinz Krebs depicts Erich Hartmann returning from a mission in his JA-111. The nose of Hartmann's F-86 sports the black tulip, his personal emblem throughout World War II. This emblem is carried by all aircraft in his new fighter wing as a sign of loyalty to their boss.
