Curtis "Jenny" Takes Flight in MN History Center.

History buffs agree: this WWI replica "Jenny" is the perennial favorite exhibit in St. Paul's Minnesota History Center.  Built to scale, and with its rich history time-line on plaques encircling the rotunda, one cannot help but be impressed by this TINY airplane and its HUGE impact in the century since Armistice Day.

It's safe to say that commercial aviation in America might never have taken off without the "war surplus" Curtis Jenny .  Check out this exhibit, soon.
