Seven other soldiers in uniform and one civilian man dressed in white shirt and bow tie stand in front of the airplane.

Milling, instructor and Fred Seydel student, Texas City, Texas, May 1913. The 'C" was a larger, heavier version of the 'B', and had fixed vertical stabilizers (Blinkers) in front for additional stability. SC-16 was flown to Houston and back by Lt. Kirtland with Sgt. Idzorek, mechanic, 12 March 1913. It was transferred to San Diego in June 1913, however, a cracked crankcase prevented it from flying. There were no spare 50 h.p. engines, thus preventing this 'C' from joining the rest of the Wright 'C's." (USAF Museum photo)."
