Jones, Charles Oliver
 
Charles Oliver Jones in 1905 built the first heavier-than-air craft to be fitted with a Curtiss engine.
 
Jones was quite active as a socialist lecturer and also an early aeronaut.
 
He turned his attentions to aerial exhibitionism, first building and flying a unique dirigible named the "Boomerang", then modifying the apparatus in the style of Capt. Baldwin, on which he lost his life when it caught fire during a flight at Waterville, Maine on September 2, 1908.
