First public display
The Jenny also shared the spotlight with the museum's latest acquisition, an OX-5 Waco 10 which made it's first post-restoration flight the day before.
The event was a great success. We estimated that 1500 people got to see the Jenny today. During a lull in the action, we had a moment to take a family photo.
I also had a chance to see Ken Gulliford. Ken is a master scale model builder from South Carolina and came all the way from there just to see the Jenny. I was touched.
Unfortunately, I was too busy to take many photos. I'm sure my friends will send me some. Now that the unveiling is over, it is time to start tightening flying wires, safety wire turnbuckles, and install lots of cotter keys. There may not be many posts in June. I have a busy month at work and I don't want to bore you with pictures of AN4 nuts getting tightened.
The first flight is just around the corner. Stay tuned!
