Back in the air !!!

I'm happy to say that the Jenny has returned to the skies. It only took a year.....

Sunday night Ron, Brian and I met at the museum.  We tracked down two little leaks and pulled the Jenny outside.  It was a perfect evening for flying.  We spent a bunch of time messing with the idle setting, and Brian almost reached his hand propping limit, but around 830PM, Ron took the Jenny for a 15 minute flight.  Enjoy the video.

Usually there is a crown at the museum and I get tons of video of the Jenny in the air. But for some reason, we were nearly alone.  Tommy and Amanda Denton came to see the flight as did Christy Eberly.  I apologize for the amateur cinematography.  I was too busy watching the flight.

Good excuse to fly it again....
