Veterans’ Day Tribute to WWI Airmen

In honor of November 11th - Veteran’sDay/Armistice Day this video is a tribute to the airmen of World War I using photographs, paintings, and prints. Over 90 years ago at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, the Great War (WWI) came to an end but its consequences live with us to this day. WWI produced the first fighter pilots and their names live on to this day most notably Manfred von Richthofen - the Red Baron. They were the national celebrities of their day and their deaths could shock a nation.
