Last Breakfast, Last Supper

On the 21st of April –

Manfred von Richthofen, aka the Red Barron, German WWI flying ace par excellence, is shot down in 1918 at 11 a.m., so we may assume he had his last breakfast on this day. In his flying carreer he is credited with shooting down 80 enemy aircraft, more than any other pilot.

Today is also Maundy Thursday, or Holy Thursday, the Thursday before Good Friday. So that would be the day of the Last Supper. Here are some images of the Last Supper:
