After the Wright brothers perfected their original design in 1905, and publicly demonstrated it in 1908 and 1909, they began manufacturing airplanes for sale in 1910. Their first offering was the Wright Model B. The Wright EX (Vin Fiz shown here) was a slightly smaller, single-seat version for exhibition flying.
