I am placing this story here because it's in the public domain. I submit the article without any editing. Remember that I don't subscribe to the notion that UFOs are piloted by aliens. ------------------------------------------- Written by www.warhistoryonline.com GERMAN FIGHTER ACE RED BARON SHOT DOWN A UFO IN 1917! BONN, Germany -- The flamboyant fighter pilot known as the Red Baron not only shot down 80 enemy planes for the Germans during World War I -- he also was the first human in history to gun down an alien spaceship! DOGFIGHT between the Red Baron and a flying saucer occurred in 1917. The UFO crashed in a ball of flames. German pilot Manfred Freiherr von Richthofen who went down in history as the famous Red Baron is WWI’s most famous pilot. No other human flyer could match his skills in flying and even fighting while up in the air. Apparently, neither could UFOs, too. Accordingly, the Red Baron spotted an Unidentified Flying Object – described as a “looking like an upside down silver saucer with orange lights” – in the spring of 1917 while he was on an early morning mission in Belgium. The account went on to say that another WWI German Air Force ace, Peter Waitzrick, witnessed the dogfight between his comrade and that of the UFO. Waitzrick described how they looked on with fear at the object as it was unlike anything they have seen before. The Red Baron immediately began firing on the said UFO and it went down crashing into the woods, mowing tree limbs on its way. Allegedly, two occupants from the saucer-like flying object clambered out from the wreckage and ran into the trees. (That must have hurt. I'm assuming the author meant tree-line or into the woods) -------------------------- Additional The two occupants had been describes as short and bald headed and ran off.(according to another report) __________________________ Now I understand where the NAZIs got their UFO. The German reversed engineered the craft and landed on the moon in 1921. They have bases across our solar system. Now you know the rest of the story.
