Colorized photo of Richthofen climbing into Le Petit Rouge; using ladders eased cockpit ingress and egress. Note Richthofen's abundant clothing to stave the cold at altitude, including a thick scarf wrapped securely around his neck and face - not trailing down his back loosely to flap in the wind a la airshow and Hollywood cliché.
