The Wright EX was a single-seat airplane for exhibition flying manufactured and sold by the Wright brothers. The Vin Fiz was the first airplane to cross the United States from coast to coast. It was rebuilt so many times during its historic cross-country flight that almost every part was replaced along the way.
