The 1917 Curtiss Jenny—one of only five in existence—flew  its final flight this morning.

The last ride was auctioned off this past Monday to a retired air force pilot for $32,000.

The money will be used to help maintain the Jenny at its new home: Wichita Falls Municipal Airport.

The final drive of a Model-T troop carrier and a Model-T car also took place this morning. Both vehicles will also reside at the municipal airport.
