Historians note that Baracca was killed in 1918 when his Spad VII was shot down by a rival Austrian aircraft. Soon after, Enzo Ferrari supposedly met the parents of Baracca at a local racing event in which they suggested to put the Cavalino symbol on his racecars for good luck. The story goes on that Enzo Ferrari eventually created his own version of this logo in which is seen on the cars produced even in present-day.
