Red Barons shot down

This just in: You can’t sell pizzas with airplanes anymore.

The Schwan food company, owners of the Red Baron Pizza brand, has announced it’s grounding the Red Baron Squadron, an airshow team that flew Stearman biplanes at airshows from coast to coast, but was based in Marshall.

“The retail grocery industry has experienced considerable change over the past few years. And, as a result, we have decided to refocus our Red Baron marketing program and to discontinue the Red Baron Squadron,” Schwan boss Bill McCormack said.

“We’re the New York Yankees of the air show industry,” the team’s crew chief said.

Wondering if there’s a post-Red Baron market out there for biplane pilots.
