I remember reading about a balloonist in the 80’s who was trying to circumnavigate the world.
He crossed into soviet airspace over Romania accidentally and was shot down.
But that wasn’t the best part lol… the pilots who shot him down recieved medals for “bravery in the face of extreme danger”
L O L !
Another case where a balloon was mistaken as an “UFO”. Lol
Well Garg, those pilots WERE flying Soviet aircraft. Pretty brave if you ask me.
WW1 Red Fokker Dr1 takes to the skies
Saw this today. Also loved the Dr1. Was a replica of one 6 miles form my house, when I was growing up. Would stand staring at it for ages .
Wow, that is really cool, to replicate that.
It would be cool to see it person.

I would be overwhelmed with excitement had I seen this plane in flight.
