Francesco Baracca's Achievements
Francesco Baracca became the top fighter ace before he died. His first airplane was the Nieuport 10s, which was equipped with guns that occasionally jammed. He scored his first victory when he upgraded to the Nieuport 11. When he did so he also adopted the emblem of a black prancing horse on his fighter plane. The emblem was later used as the emblem for the Ferrari. Baracca was killed on June 19th, 1918, when his plane was shot down.
