The Red Baron was buried in South Cemetery Wiesbaden, Wiesbaden, Germany (Postmedia). To conclude, the Red Baron was an amazing pilot that killed 80 adversaries. He went to school until age 11, then began military training. In 1911 Manfred joined the cavalry but was unhappy, he wanted to see action and participate in the fighting. In 1915 he joined the German air force.
While there were many air battles, the Allied Bombers sought out the German nests and tried to destroy everything that they had in sight. The German Air Force had a hard time recovering from this and it easily showed on D-Day when they had barely any planes to support their ground troops. With the Luftwaffe in ruins, damaging the German railway system would be a lot easier. Allied planes and bombers tried to destroy every railway leading to the Normandy beaches in France. This was a huge help to the invasion as pilots claimed hundreds of railcars and locomotives loaded with munitions, supplies, and troops.
A reason there was never a real shortage of pilots and observers was because while in training school many learned the harsh reality of trench warfare, and many even asked for a transfer to the Royal Flying Corps, the British air arm of the British Army. For example, one person that decided to change to the Royal Flying Corps, was Canadian William “Billy” Avery Bishop. After Bishop had learned all about the dangers that take place within trench warfare, he quickly asked to be transferred and that was possibly one of the smartest things done in WW1. Billy Bishop had second most downed enemies with 72 in WW1 only to trail the Red Baron. Billy played a huge part in the growth of Canada as an independent country, he demonstrated excellent initiative and showed that Canada is a strong country, and one that shouldn’t be messed with.
(RE-WORDING MA) The chaos of society is represented by the plane crash and the several generations involved throughout the novel.

Sullenburg turns a potential disaster into an act of composure and skill. Colliding with a flock of geese, caused 2 of the plane’s engines to go quiet. Unable to reach another airport, Sully landed the plane in the Hudson River. Crippled by a bird strike, 2 of the 4 engines went quiet and were badly damaged. Sully alerted the tower, that he was not able to reach the runway.
Through his humorous stories, like wanting “apple cheeks” (23), and crash landing his plane on purpose, his purpose in the story is shown. At first, Orr crashing his planes just seemed like freakish accidents because he was “knocked down into the water or had an engine shot out almost every time he went up,” (229). This, however, is later revealed to have a purpose. He crash landed his planes to practice for his real mission, to escape and make it to Sweden. This shows one of the main themes of the book: one must go to extremes to escape the war.
They know that they are going to get caught and they are probably going to die “A ship full of refugees being bombed in the Mediterranean” (George Orwell 8). Some examples of ignorance is strength is, In the beginning Winston writes in his journal about the late night flicks during hate week, the boat of refugees and the big man that was trying to get away from.

Every time you hop on a plane, on some pathetic whim and desperation to fit in, you hurt everyone around you!” Beckett’s tone elevates to a yelling jeer, his jaw clenched white. “Pathetic whim?” “Yes, Ryan! Every decision you make seems to shape up to pathetic whim, if you can even make the decision. That’s a rarity with you.” Beckett’s words are cruel, cruel because they’re honest. Years of pent up aggression and angst unleashed in a sudden confrontation.

The plane that was supposed to land on the White House did not reach because the people on the plane fought back to gain back control of it, but still crashed far from the White House killing everyone in it. Alan Dershowitz gave a good description in Why Terrorism Works on how people react over a situation that not many people and some countries have ever
I remembered having the same emotions of shock and confusion that Thompson clearly relays in his story from that day when the planes struck the towers and thousands lost their lives. Though the newspaper article by Litsky and Williams is well written in its own right, the writing method employed seemed to separate me from the events being described. It was like I was viewing the events through a filter which blocked all emotion,
The hatch opened into a blinding ray of light and out stepped Helmholtz and Bernard from the back. “I really do wish that they had allowed us to fly our own helicopter here.” complained Bernard. “Quit your complaining Bernard that’s all I’ve heard for the entire trip. My seat is too hard, I’m out of Soma. how come they don’t have feelies on this helicopter.”Bernard honestly if you’re going to keep complaining I have no idea what I might end up doing just shut your trap for once.” exploded Helmholtz.
