Hi Diego,
  I saw that film in COLOUR! I know it was in the early 70's and was a bit anti war at the time of the Vietnam War. I heard then that a lot of the footage came from outakes of The Blue Max which was also filmed in Ireland. Some actor named something Lord played Richtofen but I can't remenber who played Brown. Not bad as I recall.

I saw the movie long ago. It was a B class movie, but with interesting 
flying scenes. Of note it is that the famous author Richard Bach flew some 
of the stunts. I wonder if this DVD release would bring more on that...
