the first fighter wing of the new German Federal Luftwaffe, led by the
famous Ace of Aces Colonel Erich Hartmann, was named JG 71 Richthofen
after another well-known German fighter ace, the Red Baron Manfred
Freiherr von Richthofen.
Hartmann returns from a mission in his JA-111. The nose of Hartmann's F-86
sports the black tulip, his personal emblem throughout World War II. This
emblem is carried by all aircraft in his new fighter wing as a sign of
loyalty to their boss.
