Charles Green
Birth: 1785
Death: 1870

Aviation Pioneer. Born in London, England, he was balloonist whose outstanding achievements were some of the first in modern flight. In 1821, he was the first to use hydrogen as a lift percolation and in 1836, with two companions he flew from London to Weilburg, Germany, a distance of 480 miles. His 18-hour trip set a long-distance balloon record for flights from England and was not beaten until 1907. He was also the first balloonist to reach over 27,000 feet and his small working model of a balloon which incorporated the first mechanically driven propeller ever to power an aircraft was flown in 1840. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
