'The Red Baron' was lost in action earlier today
March 18th 2006 when a sudden gust of wind hit him at stage separation,
turning him on a ballistic trajectory on a E9-6 sustainer.
He simply flew out of range, way into deep woods, never to be seen again.

Dangit, now I have to build another one.... :-)
