Caption: Thomas Scott Baldwin (1854-1923), US aviator and balloonist, at the wheel of the Red Devil aeroplane that he designed. Baldwin began his career as a circus performer, using hot air balloons to perform acrobatics from. In 1885 he made the first public descent from a balloon with a parachute. At the turn of the century Baldwin began designing a motorised balloon. The hydrogen-filled airship (dirigible), named the California Arrow, made its first public flight on 3rd August 1904. Baldwin designed airships for the US Army and Navy, set up a training school for airship pilots and, during World War I, became Chief of Army Balloon Inspection and Production.
