This great Jenny picture has been floating around lately. I saw it on Facebook and just loved it. It really captures the essence of the barnstorming era. Check out the clothing!
This weekend, I had a chance to attend the Golden Age Air Museum fly-in. If you have not heard about it, the Central Pennsylvania based museum is fast becoming a mecca for old airplanes. They flew their rotary powered Fokker Triplane at the show, but I liked seeing the Jenny in the air the most. You can see more about this neat museum at www.goldenageair.org
John Gaertner from Blue Swallow Aircraft also attended the fly-in and took this neat video of Paul Dougherty flying the Jenny:
I'm also glad to report that Blue Swallow Aircraft has been commissioned to restore a Jenny for a customer in Virginia. While driving north, I stopped by to see the project and John gave me the tour of the place.
Here is the Jenny on the left next to the Avro 504 project on the right.
I figured these pictures were more interesting than seeing Ron, Brian and I spraying paint! More updates soon.
