Saw a nice Jenny this past weekend at the Golden Age Air Museum, 35 miles
east of Harrisburg, Pa. Also got to see/hear a rotary on a Fokker  triplane
get run up. Pretty cool.

Great link!  Thanks Jim.  I wonder how many restored Jennies are out there
now, flying and static?  There seems to be quite a boom on.

"actually it would be a Curtiss JN3 or 4 in order to give it a combat
history, preferably before 1916!"

 

That reminds me, there is a fantastic blog by a man who is
restoring/building a JN-4D at
http://www.curtissjennyrestoration.blogspot.com/

 

I've been downloading many of his photos for reference in building my Model
Airways 1:16 Jenny.

Now here's the thing:

If you were given the chance to be transported in time to some point between
1914 to 1918 on the European Western front of the Great War, given some
training to fly airplanes (at Issoudun or at Aviano or at Schwerin) and then
you could choose ANY aircraft of the era to make a tour over the trenches...
I guess I'd choose -for practical reasons- a Fokker D.VIIf. However, for the
looks, I'd choose a Nieuport 11. Or a Sopwith Pup.

What airplane would you choose?
