Glenn Curtis a pioneer aviator and Wright Competitor was based in Hammondsport, NY. He came to aviation from motorcycle and marine interests. Cole Palen built this reproduction of his Model D pusher in 1976. Originally powered by a Hall Scott engine and now mounting a Curtiss OX-5, the airplane flies almost weekly during our air shows. During the winter of 2003, it made its longest flight around an Australian Airport.
