Charts, Airspace and Airport Incursions Avoidance Webinar

LaGuardia Approach ChartCharts, Airspace and Airport Incursions Avoidance Webinar

This is a very informative webinar presented to answer questions related to odd and different things about charts.

It is presented by the New England FAASTeam and is a follow up on an earlier webinar about “Things that Make You Go Hmmm – Charts”. Who among us hasn’t scratched their head while looking at a chart?

Charts help us navigate both on the ground and in the air. But sometimes they have symbols we don’t remember the meaning of.

During a recent webinar the audience had more questions than there was time enough to answer.

The Red Baron – Manfred von Richthofen and Fokker Dr. 1

The Red Baron

Perhaps the most famous pilot of World War I, Manfred von Richthofen (known as “The Red Baron”) created havoc among Allied pilots downing officially 80 Allied aircraft during WWI.

von Richthofen earned the nickname after his Fokker Dr. 1 triplane is painted in a distinctive red livery.

He remains to this day one of the most widely known fighter pilots of all time.

Rare Video

In this rare video shows von Richthofen preparing for a flight.

Notice how von Richthofen dresses in his flying suit.

First come the pant coveralls followed by his leather flying jacket. Next comes the helmet and scarf.

He then puts on his flight suit over his regular uniform.

A quick look at the map followed by a short briefing of his fellow pilots and it is time to start the engine.

A mechanic next oils each cylinder of the rotary engine.

Until next time keep your wings straight and level Hersch!
