The WWII pilots who were the first to fly jets learned to fly in little cloth & wooden biplanes -- the aircraft of the 1920s & 1930s. One such airplane was the Curtiss JN4 “Jenny,” known as the “Model T of airplanes” because it was the first aircraft to be mass-produced. Jennys became the airplane of choice for barnstormers and early airmail pilots. Charles Lindbergh, Amelia Earhart & Bessie Coleman learned to fly in Jennys. Story of this remarkable airplane from the point of view of an early pilot. It imagines the experience of flying a Jenny, and illustrates how an aircraft was made during a time when building airplanes was a craft. Young readers can understand not only how they were built, but how their control surfaces work & how they fly.
