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"

cowl to wing wire #1

Today was wire wrapping day!  Brian and I got a few wires remade and we showed Jack how to do it.  Gotta keep this old technology alive with the new generation.  Jack did a fine job.

 

One of the new wires we made goes from Station 1 to wing strut #3.  I guess the Curtiss engineers worried about the wing pulling backwards because there are four wires preventing it from doing so.




Hope to have more to post this weekend.  Enjoy

Brian
