OX-5 Coming Out Of The Cannuck
644-2-60 ... Pioneer Flight Museum, Kingsbury, Texas, USA
Photo courtesy of my friends at PFM. ... Enhanced by me to bring out details.
They are very carefully lifting the engine out of the Canuck. ... They had to remove a couple of accessories that would have hung up.
NOTE: This particular plane happens to be painted in post war civilian colors but it's original role was as a trainer for WWI pilots, hence I have taken the liberty of sending this photo to "Warbird", "trainer", "military", "World War One" and "Great War" groups on Flickr.
This is a World War One Curtiss OX-5 engine used in the Curtiss JN-4 Canuck replica. ... The Canuck is the Canadian version of the Curtiss JN-4 Jenny.
Photos like this are of special interest to me because I am building a scale model of a Curtiss JN-4 Jenny with a Curtiss OX-5 engine. ... One never knows when a photo may show some detail that none of your other photos show.
PFM restores rare WWI airplanes and vehicles and builds replicas of WWI airplanes and vehicles if no original is available. Their work is always as true to the original as possible. The expert at Pioneer Flight Museum is Roger Freeman, who is well-known in vintage aircraft circles.
