Additionally, they announced that they've inserted 100 sheets of the "uninverted jennys" to recreate the excitement of the collector who discovered the original 24-cent version back in 1918. Check out more info here.
Friends of Jenny is proud to announce "The 2018 AirMail Centennial Tour".
Our Jenny, 38262 is available for public appearances. Based in the heartland of America, Bowling Green, Kentucky (BWG), 38262 is in the process of scheduling the very exciting 2018 Air Tour, focusing on the Centennial of the U.S. Airmail. Sponsored by the College Park Aviation Museum http://www.collegeparkaviationmuseum.com/2997/Airmail-2018 we will reenact the original air mail route as it was first developed by the U. S. Postal Service between Washington D.C., Philadelphia, and New York City. The flight plan is supported by a team of FOJ pilots and ground Crew that travel in support of the mission.
Weather permitting, our Jenny will fly between 150 and 200 miles per day. While transiting, we will seek partnerships that will typically include an EAA chapter hosting our visit, by providing an enclosed hanger and fuel, lodging for our crew (homes are just fine) in return for tours of the 38262, demonstration flights, educational packets on the importance of early aviation to America, and media kits to promote in advance the Jenny's appearance.
If you would like to be included in one of Jenny's flight plans, please let us know, by clicking here.
