Call Field Exhibit commemorates Call Field, the United States Army Air
Corps training camp in Wichita Falls during WW I. The
plane flown at Call Field, which served as this country’s first
military trainer, was the Curtiss JN4-D, known as the “Jenny.”
The crown jewel of the exhibit is our genuine Jenny biplane.
It is one of only five in existence still certified for flight,
and for the last few years she has graced the skies above Wichita Falls
Fall 2014, the Call Field Exhibit will move to the new Wichita Falls
Regional Airport as part of a project we call “Jenny to Jet.” Across
from the Jenny will be a United States Air Force T-38 jet and artifacts
related to Sheppard Air Force Base. This one-of-a-kind display
with the very first U.S. military training plane and a modern jet that
is a current trainer will show the world Wichita Falls’s unique
history and proud commitment to our armed forces. And given that
Call Field was the forerunner to Sheppard, “Jenny to Jet” will also
serve as proof that history has a direct link to our present day lives.
