Jack Lanning's Famous Travel Air 4000 Flys Again

On October 19 we crossed our fingers and started up our newest of the new-to-WAAAM airplanes to see if we could fly it.

This 1928 airplane has a J4 Wright engine built by Pacific Northwest icon, Jack Lanning. Lanning built many of the J4 and J5 Wright engines used in Travel Airs and Stearmans in the Northwest. This Travel Air 4000 took to the skies just as well as it did for many of the big fly-ins in Pacific Northwest past. Special thanks to Lanning's brother, Dan Lanning, for allowing WAAAM to acquire this airplane and to ensure that Jack's legacy lives on. Check out the photos here.
