On April 21, 1918, Manfred von Richthofen, Germany's most feared fighter ace known as the "Red Baron," took off on patrol over the Somme valley with his notorious red-painted Flying Circus for the last time. NOVA's investigation of the Red Baron's death presents newly discovered documents that overturn the conventional theory of von Richthofen's demise and explores the origins of the first fighter planes and the evolution of aerial tactics.
