    My great Uncle remembered – my late Mother used to tell me about his stunts – Although born and bred here in Sussex (two miles up the coast from Lancing of all places) I have been known to leave the odd plane before it landed myself… incredible to hear of the original Batmen!.

    I am the daughter of Charles “Charlie” Zmuda. I grew up viewing a scrapbook of news clips of my dad as he traveled with the Art Davis Airshow doing the “batman” parachute act, following the untimely death of Clem Sohn. I have always been very proud of my dad. Following his involvement with the airshow,
    he became a captain with American Airlines. Most of all, he was a great guy and a wonderful dad.
