A nice view of an anonymous JN-4 in flight.
Another JN-4 “shooting up” camp buildings.
The wide span of the JN-4 is evident in this air-to-air picture of C197. Note the markings on the control surfaces, a common feature on many of these aircraft.
Another air-to-air picture, rather accentuating the generous wing span.
A line up of JN-4s, including Winnipeg and MacDonnell. These were presentation aircraft, and the names were often transferred to other aircraft long after the original had been destroyed. Many of them were named after battles of the war of 1812.
This JN-4, C591, has suffered very little damage as a result of almost nosing over. There was an incredibly high accident rate at these training camps, although there were only 130 fatalities out of the 4,000 pilots trained during the period. There was only one recorded instance of a fire following a crash, and this was probably caused by a lightning strike.
