Looking for any photographs or technical documents of a Glenn Curtiss biplane referred to as the "Hudson Flier". It was also known as the "Albany Flier". This aircraft was used in 1910 for the following;

1. First city to city flight in the US.
Albany, NY to NYC - May 29, 1910

2. First over-ocean flight. Atlantic City, NJ - July 5th, 1910

3. First take-off from a Navy ship. Uss Birmingham - Nov.14, 1910

Have already search the internet, eBay, and various other museum archives including NASM.

I am working on a project with the Glenn H. Curtiss Museum, in Hammondsport, NY. We are going to build a full-scale flying replica of this airplane. Work has already started on the wing spars.

......Thank you.....

Appreciate the response, but 165 people have read it in one day.

This less specific title generated more views in one day than my
very specific "Curtiss A-1 Triad reproduction Flies" thread title generated in two weeks.
