Same type, just a few years later "production" one. The original plane was cannibalized by the Wrights, to make following experiments. Years later, they scraped up all the old parts that they could find, and used them to "recreate" the plane, and sent the result to the Science Museum in England, because they were mad that the Smithsonian wanted to give Langley credit as the first. The plane came back to the US and went to the Smithsonian after WW2, only after the Wright heirs extorted an agreement from the Smithsonian, that even if other evidence came to light the question of the Wrights being the first would be supported by the Smithsonian

Sorry, Hotshot, I know that this is off railroad topic.
The only way anybody can 100% dispute the ''''who was first'''''' arguement is to hop into their time machine and record the actual event with their time linked camera.
This could also apply to the one loaf and one fish bible claim , he fed a multitutude of people. And did anybody really rise again on easter monday .?
Only time machines can answer this and many many other questions about history.
