The Red Baron is back in the skies.
Brothers Paul and Jarrod Lindemann have restored a 1941 Stearman biplane that was part of the Red Baron Squadron, an aerobatic team that barnstormed air shows across the U.S. from 1979 to 2007. The plane started as a U.S. Army Air Corps trainer in World War II, then got a second life as a crop-duster.
In its third life, the biplane twisted, turned and pleased fans of flight as it hawked Red Baron pizzas for the Schwan Food Co. of Marshall, Minn.
