PILOT STORIES: The Army Pilots

A Curtiss Jenny JN-4H Jenny ready to take off from the Washington, D.C. temporary airmail field near the Potomac River on the polo grounds
Once gas had finally been retrieved for the airplane, this Curtiss Jenny JN-4H "Jenny" took off from the Washington, D.C. temporary airmail field near the Potomac River on the polo grounds. Hundreds of spectators watched as the airplane took flight, and waited for the mail which arrived a few hours later from New York City by way of Philadelphia's Bustleton Field.
