Thats correct, was about to post that.   The clue was the "JT-1" in the photo.


Here is a link to a better photo of one.

Yeah. There was also a second "Jeanie's Teenie", the Teenie Two.

Both the JT-1 and JT-2 were designs of Mr. Calvin Y. Parker who marketed the plans.
The JT-1 first flew in 1968 and a few were built (N4450/N8611/N71JS are examples). The JT-2 followed in 1968 and it seems safe to assume that 100+ were completed, especially in the USA.
The Freudiger SF-01 (HB-YAO) was a modified JT-1 built in Switzerland by Mr.  Stefan Freudiger and completed in 1974.

Didn't know about the SF-01. Thanks a lot!

If anyone of our regular members is interested in a PDF of the Teenie Two's brochure (about 4.7 Mb), I'll be glad to oblige.

Thanks, all, for these posts.  It's great to see homebuilt aircraft featured here at SPF.

Calvin Parker's designs were revolutionary in bringing factory-type all-metal contraction to low-cost, low-power homebuilt aircraft.

Gary Watson's Windwagon was derived from the Teenie Two and there is still a builder's Community supporting the design.



Watson's Windwagon in turn inspired Morry Hummel's Bird and later Ultracruiser designs which are still popular today.



And Hummel's designs inspired the most recent development, Bruce King's roomier BK1.



Cheers,

Matthew
