UFO News: It is well-known in UFO circles that UFO sightings of strange aerial objects appear to increase dramatically during times of war. And while many of us are familiar with the numerous UFO sightings during the conflicts in Vietnam and the Persian Gulf, or perhaps the foo fighter sightings of the Second World War, such accounts and incidents in World War One seemingly do not enjoy such a plateau, despite there being many such incidents on record. Perhaps one of the most intriguing of these First World War encounters is that of Baron Manfred Von Richthofen otherwise known as the Red Baron, one of the most feared fighter pilots of his era. In an account told eight decades after it occurred by a wing man who accompanied the Red Baron on the morning of the incident, it is claimed that the German fighter pilot ace not only witnessed an apparent UFO Sighting from another world, but he fired and shot it down. As we shall see, there are some who remain suspicious of the account. However, a similar incident is on record taking place around the same time but on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean in the United States. And furthermore, these are far from isolated incidents during the bloody years of the First World War. Were these strange craft alien visitors observing yet another human war unfolding before them? Or is their presence whoever they might be merely coincidental to what is taking place at the time.?
