Volmer Jensen

Welcome to my Volmer Jensen information page. This page is a very rough work in progress where I save some links to various Volmer Jensen information from around the net, and so it's pretty raw and not terribly organized yet.

If you have information you would like to see added, email me at choppergirl@air-war.org --CHOPPERGIRL

"Dorothy" - Choppergirl's Volmer Jensen VJ-24W restoration project

She was designed by Volmer Jensen, who also designed and built the Star Ship Enterprise in the 1960's TV Show Star Trek, and her wing was designed by Irv Culver, who designed the SR-71 Blackbird with Kelly Johnson, and worked on the P-38 Lightning. She was one of the world's first motor gliders and ultralights; there are less than a dozen VJ-24W's still existing... three of those are in museums... two are DSK kits... of which mine is one, and the other owned by DSK which is now long since defunct. I bought her for $38 on eBay, and when I found her, she was rotting behind a storage shed...
