The overwhelming majority of the first tens of thousands of flights taken by Americans were in Jennys hopped at barnstorming shows. Veteran pilots scuffled to make ends meet by doing stunts and hiring out such rides, thereby introducing the American public to the air. Also notable is the revolutionary "tractor" design: engines moved from the rear of the plane to the front thanks to Curtiss' design efforts. The U.S. Army demanded the change for pilot safety in the event of crash, and today the fundamental design history of the biplane still carries vestiges of the JN blueprint.

In May of 1920, Tex Marshall, his wife Katherine Marshall, and Frank Palmer took off from Sea Breeze, Florida in a Curtiss JN-4D "Jenny" and a "Canuck" (a Canadian-made version of the Jenny) on a cross-country barnstorming tour to Findlay, Ohio. In these flights, you'll re-create Tex's journey across the southeast.
