Wright Flyer Replica

On a layover in the States the other day I'm pretty sure I heard on the news that the Wright Flyer replica,being prepared for a display to commemorate the centenary of flight, had crashed. Now I may have been dreaming this in my post flight stupor, but if true, can anyone provide details? Hopefully, no-one was hurt...

Even the one in the Kittyhawk museum is a replica.

Is it true that the real thing is in the London science museum, or did the Smithsonian get it eventually?
