Two photos (and an accompanying newspaper article) from the era of ‘Barnstorming’.
I believe this modified modified JND4 (Jenny) dropped in around the time of Port Orford’s first ever Pioneer’s Reunion was being held August 14, 1924 dropped in around the time of Port Orford’s first ever Pioneer’s Reunion was being held August 14, 1924. Its wings were ‘clear-doped’ which is why you can see each rib.
I showed these photos to the Director of the Pearson Air Museum where I am a volunteer. Dr. Cromwell (http://www.nps.gov/fova/parknews/cromwellatpam.htm) thought that the aviators below appeared to be wearing military gear and (if the photo was taken on an Oregon beach) this Jenny could have been based in Vancouver, Washington.
I have read that going rate for a ride for a penny a pound 🙂
