I noticed that the plane in the Flight Simulator 2004 program for the Vin Fizz does not look anything like the actaul Vin Fizz plane? Is there a plane that we can download that looks like the Vin Fizz? The plane that we have is yellow and looks very modern compared to what it should look like?
The plane used for this flight is the Piper Cub "Gin Fizz", on which the Riner Brothers re-created Rogers's historical flight (this is described in their book "Flight of Passage"). As for whether you can get an add-on plane of the same type as the original "Vin Fiz", the answer is NO -- although there IS an add-on plane of the same type (the Wright Brothers Model A, included in the Abacus package "Early Years of Flight"), it only has enough fuel to fly for a few minutes at a time, and so would be unsuitable for this flight.
