Default What kind of plane depicted on US parcel post stamp Q8?

Issued in 1913, it was the first plane to ever appear on a stamp.

Can anyone tell me what kind of plane it is?

It's Figure number 7.

(FIgure 8 is the Curtiss Jenny, the one famous for the "Inverted Jenny
error....)

Any help appreciated.
