The Curtiss JN-4, commonly called the "Jenny", was never used in combat during World War I. The plane was excellent for training, however, and was used to train American, Canadian, and British pilots.
The two seat plane could be controlled from either station. It had a wooden frame construction with cloth skin, and was powered by a V-8 engine. The plane was officially unarmed, although some had machine guns added for training purposes.
This plane carries the markings of the United States Air Service, which is different from the aircraft markings of the American Expeditionary Forces who fought in World War I.
