Curtiss Jn-2 no.41 from the left

Here we see the first Curtiss JN-2, army serial number 41, in its original configuration with equal span wings and ailerons on both upper and lower wings. This layout wasn't a success, and by the end of 1915 all six of the remaining JN-2s had been given the same unequal span wings as the JN-3 and the second Model J. This picture also gives us a good view of the JN-2s rather small fun and rudder.

This aircraft was wrecked in a night landing at Pearson, New Mexico, on 19 March 1916, and was salvaged for parts to keep the other aircraft flying.
