Curtiss Jenny Restoration

Welcome! We hope you enjoy following the restoration process of a 1918 Curtiss JN4D Jenny. Once completed, the aeroplane will be flown and displayed at the Candler Field Museum in Williamson GA (30 miles south of Atlanta). You can contact me below by clicking on "VIEW MY PROFILE"

Jenny roll out date

OK everyone, the last flying wire has been built so now it is time to move the Jenny out of the hangar for some sun shine! Once it goes back in, the wings will come off and the covering process will begin.

So, on Monday evening, we will open the hangar doors and roll the Jenny out onto the ramp for the first time. This will be the only time to see it fully assembled without fabric. The next time you will see it this way is during final assembly!

We still have a lot of work to do on the fuselage (sheet metal, fuel lines, oil pump), but the wings and tail are ready to be covered with fabric. My goal is to start covering them around the first of July.

I'll post pictures when I get them. Till then...
