About the Curtiss-Wright "Junior"

At least 270 of these “homely” looking little airplanes were built in 1931, as word got around about how much fun they were to fly. With a stall speed of 30 mph and roly-poly tires, one could land this airplane anywhere and stop in 150 ft. Original examples are now very rare, resulting in a few replicas being built, such as this one.
