Playing the Red Baron

Last week, I realised my child’s dream : I enjoyed an amazing jet fighter ride ! This experience was quite expensive, and it’s definitely the best experience ever. Why a jet fighter ride ? Well, this dream goes back to my childhood, when I discovered the story of Manfred von Richthofen, best known as the Red Baron. Richthofen is the iconic fighter pilot. Credited with eighty kills, he was the leading ace on any side during the First World War. And it’s been his enduring reputation that has fuelled a sense that rival fighter pilote were engaging in something more noble than the brutality of war. It’s astonishing to think that he was a pilot for only two years and that, during his uncertain first flight at the controls, he crashed his aircraft. The machine was left looking, he thought, like a battered old school bus, and he was upset at being the butt of jokes from the other students. He got the hang of flying two days later. Any doubt about his skill in the cockpit had evaporated long before he scored his first official kill in October 1916, six months after he joined his first squadron. Born in 1892 into an aristocratie family in what is now Poland, Richthofen leamed to ride and hunt at a young age before beginning military training aged 11. In 1911 he joined a cavalry regiment, but with the outbreak of hostilities in 1914, it was clear that his unit was of no use whatsoever in a modern war. He was bored rigid, his main excitement coming from shooting wild pigs. When he was transferred to the supply branch, he requested a transfer ho the Imperial German Army Flying Corps, complaining that he hadn‘t gone to war ‘in order to collect cheese and eggs‘. Soon after he qualified as a pilot, Richthofen’s squadron was sent to the Eastern Front to drop bombs on the Russians. Still dissatisfied, he hankered to fly on the Western Front. A meeting with Germany’s leading ace, Oawald Boelke, who was looking for recruits to form a new fighter unit, provided the chance he was looking for. Although Boelke died in a mid-air collision, he continued to act as an inspiration to Richthofen. Following his late CO’s rules for combat, Richthofen began to rack up some impressive numbers. By January 1917, his sixteen kills had earned him the Pour le Mérite medal, known as the ‘Blue Max’, and command of his own squadron. In fostering his unit‘s esprit de corps, he encouraged pilots to paint their aircraft in bright colours. After forcing down a British Vickers two-man reconnaissance plane, he was thrilled to learn from the crew that his red-painted Albatros DIII was well known to them: they called it Le Petit Rouge (The Little Red). They had also treated him like the sportsman he knew himself to be. It was exactly the way he wanted to be perceived. Despite his success, Richthofen didn’t feel he’d found the ideal aircraft. He wanted manoeuvrability even at the expense of speed. It wasn’t until he recovered from a bullet which grazed his skull that he settled on the Fokker Dr.1 triplane, which instantly comes to mind at any mention of the Red Baron. In this iconic fighter he scored nineteen of his eighty victories, but it was also the machine in which he died, aged just 25. Richthofen returned to the cockpit just three weeks after having bone splinters removed from his skull following the injury that nearly killed him. Afterwards he was to suffer debilitating headaches, but the leader of the multicoloured squadron known as the ‘Flying Circus’ had become a talismanic figure in Germany. Accepting that, even embracing it, he believed he had no choice but to fight on. Initially, he struggled to find form, and while he never fully recovered from the head wound, through Match and April the following year he added a further seventeen victims. To one of the men who survived being shot down, as he was recovering in hospital, Richthofen sent a box of cigars. The Red Baron was shot through the chest on 21 April 1918 while trying to claim his eighty-first victim. At the time, his death was credited to a young Canadian Sopwith Camel pilot, Captain Arthur Brown, but it now seems more likely that the bullet that killed him was fired from the ground. I prefer it this way. It seems fitting somehow that Manfred von Richthofen, the most famous fighter pilot who’s ever lived, was not defeated in the air. If you’re a hothead like me, here is the link to fly a jet fighter.

Checking out Lagos – in Portugal

Lagos in Africa may be a dangerous city, so time is there to visit Lagos… in Portugal. The municipality of Lagos, in particular, is a lively destination for short breaks. It has a 2,000-year-old maritime history, which lends it a certain charm as you stroll through its old streets. With Roman, Carthaginian and Punic influences, its culture has much to be admired. You can find cheap holidays to Portugal very easily online, so consider booking a getaway to Lagos this summer if you want a break on a budget. If you find yourself in the Algarve, you need to visit one of the many golf courses for which the region is famous. Onyria Palmares Golf is a 27-hole course composed of three returning nine-hole loops that can be played in any sequence – so every time you go there, you can play a different series of holes. The fairways have been designed to interact with the local environment, so golfers can observe the rolling Monchique hills, the beautiful golden sand dunes and the picturesque Bay of Lagos as they tee off. The Parque Zoologico de Lagos (Lagos Zoo) is another great pitstop for holidaymakers to the Algarve. There are more than 120 animal species and 200 botanical varieties to wonder at as you stroll around the large enclosures. If you time your visit correctly you might be able to watch the pelicans and primates being fed. Kids will also love the petting farm, where goats, pigs and other farmyard animals feed out of their hands – ensure you have a few 50c coins to purchase the bags of feed. The Igreja de Santo Antonio (Church of St Anthony) is an impressive building, not least because of its hand-painted murals of Saints Anthony and Francis. There is also a little historical display recounting the Algarve’s past from the Neolithic to the Roman and Moorish times. Although there is no seating inside the church – because it was designed for the use of the military and visiting soldiers were expected to stand throughout the services – it is well worth the €3 (£2.57) entry fee. If you want to spend some time in the sun, hire a horse from the New Forest Lodge in Lagos and explore the area. Horseriding is a great way to get to know the countryside and coastal trails of the region, or if you want to avoid saddle soreness, you can rent out a horse-drawn carriage and be driven around in style. The palm-fringed marine of Lagos is a lovely spot in which to stop to watch the sunset. Have an evening constitutional around the stark white yachts moored there before settling down to a plate of fresh seafood at one of the many cafes and restaurants lining the water’s edge.

Air Iceland is developing routes

Good news for travellers to Iceland. AirIceland is set to add a new route to its collection of international flights to Iceland’s neighbouring countries. The airline currently operates flights to the Faroe Islands and five destinations in Greenland, including the capital, Nuuk. In 2016, the tongue-twisting eastern town of Ittoqqortoormiit is set for some similarly unpronounceable competition as the airline opens a new route to the remote eastern outpost of Kangerlussuaq. As well as a museum to the town’s history as a former US miltary base, Kangerlussuaq also has a 25km dirt road that offers access to the spectacular and formerly unreachable Greenland ice cap. In the summer, people kayak and hike around the fjords and lakes, and in the winter, it’s apparently a great spot to see the dancing aurora in green, red and purple colours, if there are clear skies.
