Legends of the Sky: The Jenny

This 1 hour documentary takes you back to the era of the Wright Brothers and Glenn Curtiss as they competed to build a newer, better, faster aeroplane for America…JUST as the drums of War were sounding in Europe.

I’m a romanticist.
And when I see a Jenny fly,
I think of wearing the scarf and
the helmet and out there flying . . .

RICK LIESENRING, Curator, Glenn H Curtiss Museum

 

The JN4 Jenny aeroplane became the first mass produced aerial trainer, the first to carry the U.S. Air Mail, and the first to introduce America to the sky through its colorful barnstorming story.The JENNY taught such greats as Charles Lindbergh and Amelia Earhart to fly. Find out why and learn how this icon became the foundation upon which modern aviation rests.

Stunning aerial images shot in High Definition, aviation experts share personal stories, and historic newsreels and photographs never seen before, bring the story of the JENNY to life.

“The Wright brothers took hold of a man’s centuries old dream and made it a gasoline-drinking, breathtaking reality. Then out of the travail of the first tremendous flight of 120 feet in 12 seconds at Kitty Hawk in 1903 emerged eleven years later, the wonderful, ugly, cantankerous, lovable, implausible JN4D, or by your leave – the Jenny.”
