Arch Hoxsey and Teddy Roosevelt
Just recently, (5-31-05), Harland Hoxsey reminded me that Arch had taken Teddy Roosevelt for a
ride in his Wright Model B aeroplane. Thus, Teddy became the first president to fly in a plane. Of the many links to the story of this
event, this one on the "In Depth: The Wrights on Film" section of the
Wright Experience website offers a short silent film of the flight. You can access the page by clicking on the title above. If you
have a popup preventer on your computer, you will have to disable it to view the film.
