Wright Hughes 1B

Jim Wright built an exact replica of Howard Hughes' first airplane, then set a world airspeed record for the plane's weight class on 13 September 2002 at 352.38 mph.
His replica of the Hughes H-1 racer - a one-seater called the Hughes 1B, NX258Y - crashed and exploded in a fireball in Yellowstone National Park, eight miles north of Old Faithful geyser on 4 August 1003, killing the 53-year-old pilot and machine shop owner.
