dc.description Tony Jannus flew exhibition flights over Lake Erie near the Cedar Point Amuseument Park in 1913, 1914, and 1915. The Benoist Flying Boats flown by Jannus were known as "pushers." The propeller and engine were located behind the aviator's seat. "Pushers" pushed the aircraft forward. "Pushers" were particularly dangerous when a crash occurred because the engine generally fell forward, crushing the pilot. Flying boats could take off from, land on, and steer over the water. en_US
