Wright EX Vin Fiz (replica)

This replica of the Wright Bros. Model EX was built in 1972.   The real Model B “Vin Fiz” flown by Calbraith Perry Rodgers, completed the first transcontinental flight in 1911. The name “Vin Fiz” came from a soft drink being marketed at the time by Rodgers’ sponsor, the Armour Company of Chicago.
