    He joined the Nazi party in 1933 and became a general in the Luftwaffe during WW II.
    He was good friends with Herman Goering , with whom he served during WW I, although they later had a falling out over Nazism.
    He was originally turned down for military service due to his 5'3 height but volunteered for the motorcycle corps, and after paying for private flying lessons, was accepted into the Luftwaffe.
    He crashed several times early in his career.
    He wrote his girlfriend's nickname, Lo (short for Eleanor), on the side of his plane.
    He was a fearless and honorable man; sparing enemy planes that couldn't fight back, treating POWs with respect and burying fallen opponents with full military honors.
    During the period between WW I and WW II, he worked as a stunt pilot, bush pilot, big game hunter, started his own aircraft factory and was quite the playboy.
    On a bombing mission, a bomb became stuck in his wing, forcing him to climb out on it to release it.
    He was either murdered by the Nazis or forced to commit suicide (ala Rommel) over his increasingly anti-Nazi views.
