Vintage Day 2016

Just to let you know the Jenny is alive and well.....

We had a great turn out for our museum's annual Vintage Day event.  It was too windy to fly - 15 knot direct crosswind - and I mean direct - do we just kept the Jenny displayed in front of the Youth Program hangar.  In the morning, I was interviewed by a local radio station broadcasting from the event.


Our Jenny had good company.   Chris Hill had his Fokker DR1 on display.  As you can see, a set of good wing walkers were required just to taxi from one end of the field to another.


The Fokker is going to be displayed at the museum next to the Jenny for a few months.







We were supposed to recreate the Curtiss Candy Company's famous 1923 drop of their new product - the Baby Ruth candy bar.  But the winds prevented us from using the Jenny, so I had to borrow Glen Marsh's Cub.  John Gaertner was my bombardier.


Enjoy
