Like many German First World War airmen, Lothar von Richthofen, the Red Baron's younger sibling, had a very superstitious nature about him. Lothar quite conspicuously began his military career by flying into battle with a lucky riding crop at his side in the cockpit. So it was, until older brother Manfred saw fit to convince him to trade-in the equestrian accouterment for his very own pair of "lucky" leather flying gloves. The reasoning being, if the gloves brought older brother good luck they would do the same for him. Perhaps they did at that, as Lothar not only survived a monumental case of triskaidekaphobia but also survived the war itself, with a total of 40 aerial victories no less; exactly half his brother's tally.

Glückliche Landungen,

Our Red Baron wanted Ernst Udet as a wingman so badly that he drove through a rainstorm in order to recruit him personally. Udet survived the First World War with a total of 62 aerial victories. The Baron knew what was what.

During the Second World War Udet was given high rank in the Luftwaffe, the German Air Force, but he desperately wanted out. When his direct superior, Hermann Goering, refused to permit him to resign his position Ernst Udet shot himself. Given the fact that Goering was making Udet a scapegoat for all the Luftwaffe's ills at the time, I soundly place the blame for his suicide before Hermann Goering.

After his death, the German Propaganda Ministry released a story stating that Udet had been forced to leave for health reasons. I've always maintained that they could've allowed the WWI hero to resign and then simply release the same story.

My namesake, and many others like him, may be ample proof that it's impossible to define what drives us.

Even miles above terra firma.
