It's a Jenny!

cjennyThe arrival of this plane took us by surprise. It's a restored Curtiss Jenny. It may be the only one still flying.

It landed on the ultralight area's grass strip, and then had to taxi to its parking without ever going on pavement. That's because it doesn't have a tail wheel. It only has a wooden skid.

This is a very cool airplane, and a major bit of history.
