Purchased Red Baron movie at GenCon at the Belle and Blade booth. ($30). Finally watched it. Forget a story line anything close to history. When (if) you get a chance to watch it, try to think of it as the "Enemy Ace" movie. The 2nd time I watched it I had a mind that it was a fictional story about WW 1 flyers ala "Dawn Patrol" not a movie 'based on a true story !' (snort...). I enjoyed it very much. The attention to detail is terrific. The MGs sound like the Vickers at Guntersville in 1992. The combat scenes are ...(awesome,incredible,fantasic,wow,OMG,...pick one) My only(minor,very minor) dig is that the a/c seem to be too fast and nimble for WW 1 . Especially when you compare the a/c in the Blue Max combats. The Jasta's planes have historic paint schemes along with some fictional ones. Much better than Fly Boys IMHO.

I agree Dan. After taking a couple of days to recoup on some sleep I punched the DVD cassette closed and sat back. The story line is not historical, but the air combat is wild and crazy!! I would have loved to see more but the 'plot'-storyline got in the way. The planes were all very cool, markings, engine pistons pumping (camera view on pilot), gunfire, tailing... very riveting.
Dan, thanks for showing me the store-I'll be back there next year!! Good stuff.
Someone sent me a free copy of this DVD and I can't find it anywhere. Hey guys... what about a special gaming night at my house where we take a 2 hr break to watch this film (if I can find it) on our full-wall size home theater? Popcorn and the works!
