country
Ex Yugoslavia
period
1915-1946

Miho Schön (1904 -1930) a member of Traveleri / Travellers, was a pilot fascinated by America, airplanes, new machines and speed. He was a member of the Zagreb Aero Club 'Prince Tomislav'. He had his own airplane and performed loops daily while flying along speeding trains on the Zagreb-Belgrade railway line. He considered these flights a work of art, which he performed for the train's passengers. During one such conceptual performance Miho Schön was killed. An article published in Jutarnji List / Morning Paper, dated September 29,1930 stated that his airplane crashed and immediately caught fire after performing a loop 15 meters above the ground just a mile from Velika Gorica.
