Original Wright exhibition team pilot. Born in Staunton, Illinois October 27, 1884. Died December 31, 1910 in Los Angeles, California. Hoxsey was known both for his sense of style and his daring stunts. Because of their dueling altitude record attempts, he and Ralph Johnstone were nicknamed the "heavenly twins". Hoxsey was killed during a descent from one such attempt.
