My wish is to create a web site that is solely dedicated to the Curtis Wright Junior,CW-1 aircraft. My attraction to the Junior starts back in the days of my youth when I saw a Junior at the Whiteside County airport in Rock Fall, Illinois (pictured below) local airport fly in. I got a job at that local airport during high school and ending up going to mechanics school at Spartan School of Aeronautics. Upon graduation I went back to my local area and got a job as a mechanic. Guess what airplane was based there? The same Curtiss Wright Junior. I finally got a ride in it on a cool spring morning (It flew so we weren’t over gross,,,, right?) and is a flight that I will never forget. Any time I could see a Junior in person or read an article about one, I jumped on the opportunity.
Unfortunately, my aviation career has taken me a distance from the Junior, but my idea is to use this site to reconnect and make up for all those years.
What I would like to do, is take the opportunity to converse with all the Junior owners and flyers. I would like to hear and record of all the flying stories and tales. I would like to see all the pictures. I offer this website as a place where we all can meet and share the “good old times” together.
Drop me a note, send me some pictures and tell me the story of your involvement. I will include them here (only if you want) and have them available for all to enjoy. Just email me : email@example.com.
Enough about me. Let me hear from you.
