That would be Teddy Roosevelt !
The Wright exhibition team was performing at an air meet in St. Louis when
pilot Arch Hoxsey crossed paths with Teddy Roosevelt on October 11, 1910. At
the time, Roosevelt was campaigning for Missouri’s state Republican party.
Roosevelt initially refused Hoxsey’s invitation to fly, but changed his
mind. One can only imagine what Roosevelt was thinking as Hoxsey put the
biplane into three steep dives, pulling up sharply each time.

Roosevelt later described the trip as, "the bulliest experience I ever had."

“There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
