I rode on a shuttle bus with her to Burbank airport a few years ago...regrettably, she didn't ask me to take my hat off.

I am pretty sure that is not a Jenny.  The tail is almost exactly the same, but Jennys don't have swept wings and have a rather distinct upswept nose.  Very similar, but you can see the main gear is clearly in a different location:

It looks a bit like a DH4, but those did not have swept wings either.  Probably one of the many small manufacturers back then?

According to Google Image Search, it's a 1917 Standard J-1 owned by Walt Bow. I can't link the EAA's Facebook post but the photo is from Nov 16, 2021. The Standard was used to supplement the more popular JN-1.

I never trusted people who could get their ankles, knees, and butt on the ground all at the same time like that.

Even when I was a kid if I had sat down like that, I'd have never stood up or walked under my own power again.

Hmmmm...  So, you are saying you don't trust women, then?devil

I tried to find a picture of a Japanese woman sitting in the wariza position (how Ms. Field is sitting) but all I get are anime characters.

No, I knew boys who could do that.  And I knew girls who couldn't.

In Japan called the Wariza position.  Gotta be limber and have good knees, the Seiza (on right) is better for posture.

Or weird ankles.  I can sit like that at least on the right side, because my right ankle or shin or something is twisted out. 

When I drive my RX-7, my right heel is under the clutch pedal.

Finally visited the Peterson. Damn, what a place! Was looking at this Mercedes thinking "If there's a better looking car out there, I don't know what it is"
