Still working on it

No, I have not forgotten about the Jenny. I went to Europe for a few days (work), Brian Eberle was off flying a Pitts for a few days (fun) and Ron was busy with several things here in Atlanta.

But, we managed to get a few more wires built before running out of shackles. I went to get some more today from Aircraft Spruce but they were out! So, I got to find another source so we can continue.

I'm not going to bore you with pictures of flying wires.

However, at the Bucker fly-in last weekend, I met the Rutten brothers from outside of Tallahassee Florida. The told me that their father soloed a Jenny back in 1927. I asked if they had any pictures. Here is what they sent:

Looks like an OX-5 powered Canuck. I love seeing previously unpublished photos. Makes me want to step back in time and be there.

More soon...I promise.
