Vin Fiz flying replica at the Oakland Aviation Museum

This Vin Fiz replica has an outstanding appearance and is on display in the Oakland Aviation Museum.

This Vin Fiz replica has been made more air worthy the 1911 original using modern materials as needed, as well as flight instruments located on the foot beam — photo by Joseph May

The Vin Fiz had a wide wingspan but not as wide as the Wright Flyer B, it was a Wright EX meant for exhibition flights — photo by Joseph May

This was the aircraft flown by Robert Sebring but I could not find information about him or his flights in this replica Vin Fiz — photo by Joseph May

Information about Vin Fiz and Calbraith Perry Rodgers brave, as well as historic flight, can be read by going to the 13 February 2012 post. Images of the original Vin Fiz can be seen there, as well.
