Red Baron, Part 2

I was going to change the picture on my last post, but then I decided I would just put up another one.

Fighter Squadron 11: The Red Baron and his Flying Circus. 
That's Manfred in the cockpit. His younger brother Lothar is seated on the ground in front
Note that this airplane is an Albatross D.III, not the Fokker Triplane he is commonly associated with.

I was reading about Baron von Richthofen in Wikipedia and the section about his piloting career is just riddled with dates, and I'm thinking a timeline would be really helpful here, and then I remembered running across timetoast, a web app for making timelines. Maybe someone has already made a timeline for the Red Baron. They have, and here it is.

Funny you posted this as I just watched Blue Max
Maybe I saw this first at Esquire Theatre in Bexley?
Remember being impressed by "now that we have the miracle of flight, lets try to kill each other"
and then there was Ursula Andress (When asked why she had agreed to do a Playboy shoot, Andress replied coolly, "Because I'm beautiful.")
