    This is the Model H, which matches the date stamp of March 26, 1915(?).

    The Air Force Historical Research Agency identifies the same image as "Simms Station near Dayton, Ohio 1914:

    You can see the Wright Brothers dedication to their initial design with the inclusion in the Model H of the twin pusher-propeller chain drive system and the twin vertical stabilizers (difficult to see in this photo).
