Aviation pioneer. He was perhaps the most famous early aviator in America. Perfecting and performing "aerobatics" long before the term was coined, Beachey was the quintessential daredevil. Starting with balloons and airships while still a teen and graduating to the newly invented airplane in his early 20's, Lincoln Beachey performed his arial stunts before millions and was said to have inspired such future aviators as "Hap" Arnold and Charles Lindbergh. He died piloting a stunt plane at an exhibiton in March, 1915. (bio by: Charles Redmond)
