Now it can be told!

It wasn't the Aussies, it wasn't Roy Brown!

There's still just one thing I don't understand Perry. Where do the Mafia and the anti-Castro Cubans fit in to all this?

I'll bid .25 US cents just to get it of the internet. Then if we all pool our resources we could afford it and a round of burgers.

If he'd not been hit so badly, I wonder if the crash would have killed him?
The Von's face was banged up in the photo, but if he was already dead when the Tripe hit that's to be expected.

The first Alliied at the plane said, the Rittmeister had said "Alles kaputt" and passed away. Therefore I think, he, von Richthofen, was still alive

Perhaps, if he had lived for another couple of minutes, he could have stated whether he was shot at by Brown or Popkin, or Evans...

I don't think he could tell us for certain either. A lot of people were shooting at him. I would say he's the worst person to ask. If i was to guess, he might even say Roy Brown, because he actually turned around at one point and saw him. He probably didn't even know Mg's were shooting at him, other than the sounds if they even registered in his mind that was obveously screaming ...'#81 MUST FALL!'

This one's been the rounds. I don't know what it went for in the past, but this latest spin is novel, if spectacularly uninformed.

I'm sure Bishop signed a lot of paper in his official capacity.

I doubt there'll be any takers at that price.
