Manfred von Richthofen’s trophy room during the First World War. There are several interesting things to note in the room, including the cut aircraft fabric across the walls, the rotary-engine lights, the propeller table legs, and the silver cups - under the portrait- made for his first 60 kills. Many of the trophies are believed to have been taken by the Soviets toward the end of WW2.
