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.
