Aviation enthusiast Paul Ford has built himself an exact replica of the Red Baron's Fokker triplane. He spent endless hours, and £180,000 on the aircraft - and it's now available for passengers to take part in mock dog-fights.

Manfred von Richthofen (aks The Red Baron) was fighting for the German air force when he died, I live in England which in common with many other countries, including the US, was at war with at the time so although his flying skills were no doubt admirable I will hold off from praising him.

Regarding the flights, oh no, if I go in an aeroplane I have to have a roof over my head, jet engines not propellers and someone who checks that I know how to fasten my seat belt (despite that fact I have flown hundreds of times) …... oh yes, a packet of peanuts is always welcome too!
