Ken Hyde and his team at Warrenton started the Jenny's engine Tuesday. The JN-4D was recently recovered with Irish Linen (the sunlight shines through). The airplane is restored exactly to its original form including the fabric and the dope. When reassembled the aeroplane will again be airworthy. This plane was flown to Oshkosh by Ken in 1989 when the theme was "From Jennies to Jets".

This link is to a short clip showing the start. TRT 7m.

A longer version ... unedited TRT 28m ... may be seen on the same youtube channel

More video later on OX-5's recently brought back to life after resting nearly a century
