SPAD & Jenny
By Piotr Forkasiewicz
A SPAD XIII from the 17th Pursuit Squadron rejoins with a Curtis JN-4 ‘Jenny’ after an afternoon of aerial gunnery practice, heading back to base, Selfridge Field, summer 1923. The Jenny was towing a target sleeve over the Anchor Bay portion or Lake Ste Clair. Together, both aircraft rendezvous over the farmlands of northern Macomb county before heading back to base.
Proceeds from the sale of prints help us in our restoration efforts.
The Selfridge Military Air Museum is working on a major fund-raising campaign for some long-needed infrastructure improvements, the most important a ‘new home’ for the FG-1D Corsair that is currently undergoing extensive restoration and our beloved T-6 ‘Texan’, which we’d like to get out of our Michigan weather.
The Corsair is currently being restored by our restoration team. Please help, if you can!
