1918 Curtiss JN-4D 'Jenny'


Fantasy of Flight
Polk City, FL

In July of 2007 we delivered the restored JN-4D to Kermit Weeks at Fantasy of Flight in Polk City, FL. This JN-4D was damaged by Hurricane Andrew in 1992. The broken airplane had been shipped from Fantasy of Flight to our shop in East Wenatchee. We disassembled the aircraft and replaced any wood or metal parts that were damaged. This included all of the wing spars and the fuselage longerons. The Jenny was reassembled here at our shop before it was, once again, disassembled and shipped back to the Fantasy of Flight where Kermit’s shop will re-fabric it, reinstall the engine and systems and return it to the air.
