They started with the fact that there are four claimants, Brown and three Aussie gunners. All firing the same .303 amunition. They worked at accuratly tracking the final flight path. They used the autopsie to determine hit angle and bullet energy. They used a RB 3D like simulation to in essence prove that there was very little probability that Brown could have actually hit MvR, especially in a manner that could cause the wound angle. Their simulation stated that in five for five passes Brown diving at 180 mph and shooting at over a 1000 yards didn't score one hit on MvRs airplane. They used a computer driven laser to simulate rate of fire and bullet lag of a vickers, and a modern marksman to track and shoot at a light plane that was following the route MvR flew. They concluded that two of the three gunners had adequate time and angle to acctually score a hit on MvR that would match the wound path. The "newly discovered secret" document was a letter from one of these two candidates "snowy" (sorry I'm terrible with names) which stated that he only fired on MvR while the Barron was flying straight at him. So he couldn't have hit the Barron at the correct angle. This leaves one ground gunner as the most likely candidate for who actually killed the Red Barron. And they dramatically concluded with pointing out that all they had of this gentleman was a name, no pictures or remaining family members.

Tell me more! > D. The booklet I have in mind was one of the three in the Albatros "Aces & Aeroplanes" (or so I think) series. The other two were on Voss and Guynemer. I think all three were by Dennis Hylands - but I'm not sure about that, being in the company at this moment, and having therefore no access to the book. The booklets were rather small (in line with the earlier Datafiles), but nicely done with a lot of photos, 2 or three of the aircraft in color, victory lists etc. And BTW, my understanding on the 18 Feb kill over "Green Tail" is that while Klein of jasta 5 was also KIA on that date, it was something like the combat was wrong place, wrong time for Klein, whereas Kaiser fits into the picture (even though from Kaiser's point of view it could also be argued that *he* was in the wrong place at the wrong time). But again, that's just my impression from what you usually find on that combat - and then I'm not to interested in that "who shot down whom in the skies of France" stuff.

Agreed! Diego, you call it a "survivor". Unfortunately, I can't read Czech or Czechoslovak. Can someone tell me where this restoration is taking place and the aircraft's precedents? I checked my copy of Ray Rimell's "World War One Survivors" and no Fokker E.V is listed. He lists one D.VIII, the fuselage and engine only, being in the Museo Caproni in Italy. Of course, this book was copyrighted in 1990 so maybe this is a more recent development?

I checked my copy of Ray > Rimell's "World War One Survivors" and no Fokker E.V is listed. He > lists one D.VIII, the fuselage and engine only, being in the Museo > Caproni in Italy. Of course, this book was copyrighted in 1990 so maybe > this is a more recent development? > The photos actually show the Museo Caproni D VIII - note it's written somewhere in the text. Note also the ot SM 79 somewhere in the background. BTW, the Museo Caproni is IMHO one of the most beautiful aircraft museums one can imagine - beautiful location as well...
