A few weeks ago, we published a story by Adam Estes describing the history of the original Curtiss JN-4D Jenny presently undergoing restoration at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force in Dayton, Ohio. The refurbishment effort is moving along at a significant pace now, reaching the point where the museum specialists can now reapply new fabric to the 105 year old airframe. We thought our readers might enjoy seeing some images of this work underway.
