The Last of the Barnstormers ” A Curtis Jenny is flying in the background over a Virginia farm.

 

After W. W. I there were many former Army aviators looking for employment. The aviation industry went into a slump and ceased for a while to produce new aircraft. Happily for these aviators the Army sold off many of its Curtis biplanes and these were bought up by aviators. Soon displays of flying ability and acrobatics were brought to americans all over the country. The Curtis Jenny popularized flying just as Henry Ford had made owning a car possible for most Americans.
