Curtiss JN-4 Jenny 3/4 scale replica 3501

Photographed at Oshkosh AirVenture on 29 July 2004.
Built by Rick Hayes in the USA, painted with insignia in memory of Lt. Thomas Selfridge. It is believed that 3501 was the tail number of an aircraft flown by Selfrisge in 1917, and also that this was the first aircraft to be based at Mt. Clemens' Joy Field, which was later named after Selfridge.
The replica is powered by a 65 hp Franklin engine, cruises at 55 mph and stalls at 35 mph. It first flew in 2003.

Couldn't have been Selfridge's aircraft, because he was the first person to die in an aircraft accident while riding as a passenger with Orville Wright on Sept. 17, 1908.

Quite right, Stewart! I have re-checked where I got this information from - it is on the EAA Sport Pilot web site, in an article about this aircraft on page 23 of the November 2004 edition. It just goes to show that the Internet contains a lot of incorrect information! Many thanks for the correction.
