A standard Wright Model B owned by the Alger brothers of Detroit, this airplane was outfitted with aluminum pontoons and flown by Frank Coffyn over New York in 1912. It eventually was wrecked by Flavius E. Loudy in Barton's Pond near the University of Michigan on the first flight of the University's aero club. The engine on the airplane was salvaged, and is now in the collection of the Wright Experience, where it has been restored to running condition. It was used as the powerplant for the reproduction Wright Model B which crashed near Warrenton, Virginia, in 2003.
