How The Red Baron Met His Doom

Alas, the famed Red Baron bit the dust. His last flight in his Fokker was a bust. Some thought Snoopy shot him down, But t'was a dude named Roy Brown, Leaving Charlie Brown and his friends nonplussed! Robert L. Hinshaw, CMSgt, USAF, Retired (c) 2014 All Rights Reserved NOTE: There is controversy to this very day about who and how the Red Baron actually died. Canadian pilot Roy Brown claimed he shot him down but there is some evidence that he may have been hit by a rifleman from the ground. Here's hoping this will keep you awake at night worrying about it!!!

Dear Bob, I didn't know about Roy Brown. As I work on my collection of "Legends, Mysteries and History," this is food for thought. Thanks for the email. When I taught high school, I directed "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown." The kids loved Snoopy and so did my late husband. Hope all is well for you and your family. Love, Carolyn

Actually, John "played" Snoopy in a community theater production of the same play. I'm smiling now thinking of his wonderfully witty performance.

Hey, Bob, Snoopy thought he shot him down too. Well, this is certainly disturbing. was this Roy Brown pilot with the integrity of Snoopy. I will do some extensive research and get back to you, my friend.... Robert.
