Morok 1911 biplane
Belgian aviator Charles Frank van der Merrsche, alias Charles F. Morok (the name he used in the USA), flying his biplane over the Sandusky County Fairground at Fremont, Ohio in September 1911. Following the Boston Aero Show in February 1910, Morok was flying for Fred Shneider on Shneider biplanes. He then settled on the Nassau Boulevard Aerodrome of Garden City, formed a flying school and built a biplane of his own in Summer 1911. The machine had a span of 32 feet (9,75 m) and a weight of 500 pounds (227 kg). The engine was a 45 hp Anzani, probably American-built. It has been stated that two of these machines were built for exhibition and training duties.
