Normally I don't photograph very early aeroplanes but being in Dayton, home of the Wright Brothers, of powered flight and the first airport... it would be rude not to! This original Flyer is a modified version of the Type B Flyer, the major modifications are the installation of an eight-cylinder Rausenberger engine instead of the original four-cylinder Wright engine and the addition of ailerons on the trailing edges of the wings in place of the Wrights' wing warping design.
