Zornes, Charles
Charles A. Zornes seems to have started aircraft construction in Walla Walla, Washington, USA, in 1909. After they trained at the Benoist Aviation school in St. Louis, he and Johnny Ludwig together with some associates set up a company in 1912 in Pasco, Washington to manufacture aeroplanes. He also ran a flying school there, with the 1912 headless pusher and at least two others. Zornes crashed on April 19 1912, with injuries that did not seem to be life threatening. He appears in some lists of aviation casualties after the accident, but it appears he might have survived and lived until 1954.
