1989: From Jennnies to Jets

From then president Butch Joyce’s Straight and Level column in the October, 1989 Vintage Airplane:

“Those of us who had the privilege of attending EAA Oshkosh ’89 will have the memory of seeing no fewer than six Jennies. A number of people expressed their delight in seeing those aircraft flying. Several older pilots told me even though they had been around quite a few years, they had never seen a Jenny fly.

I wish to express my personal thanks to the owners and pilots who brought their Jennies to Oshkosh. A special thanks goes to Ken Hyde who organized this gathering. We should also recognize the organizational work of Tom Poberezny for his securing transportation and sponsorship for these aircraft. Tom , with the help of Bill Turner and Allied Van Lines , and Tom Davis who obtained sponsorship from a number of airlines pulled all this together and made it work.
