A detailed photograph of the first appearance of a Wright airplane with wheels under the skids, on August 10, 1910. The Wright Company had entered into a contract with the Aero and Motor Club of Asbury Park, NJ, to provide Wright aircraft at the August aviation meet.

The airplane was damaged on August 10 when its pilot, Walter Brookins, swerved to avoid photographers, stalled, and hit several spectators.
