* MightyGlacier: The huge Handley-Page bombers in the second and night battle scenes. The trick was to hit the engines of these bombers, disabling them, thus causing them to lose control, fall down, and crash.

* CoolPlane: perhaps the ''original'' cool plane, The Red Baron's signature all red Fokker Dr.1 triplane. However, as the film accurately depicts, he actually scored most of his kills flying Albatross D.II, D.III and D.V biplanes. His first red plane was a D.III

* PuttingOnTheReich: The German military really outdoes itself once ''those'' guys come into power, but even in WWI their uniforms were pretty pimp. Of course, the Baron inspired the iconic style of the fighter ace, which foreign aviators eagerly imitated, and eventually came to be universally associated with aviators.
