A replica of the Gee Bee which Florence Klingensmith flew to second place in the Women's Free-For-All race at the 1933 Chicago International Races, on display at the Fantasy of Flight. The original was destroyed later in the Phillips Trophy race, when the fabric on the top of the right wing tore off and the airplane crashed, killing Klingensmith.
