Palen created the replica from measurements taken from an airplane that was under reconstruction at the Smithsonian Institution's National Air and Space Museum, one of two original Albatros D.Va. airplanes.

Ohio aviation pioneer gets her statue at Columbus airport
Coshocton Tribune
Bill Kelley of Heath, Ohio, has spent more than four decades trying to get people to remember the name Jerrie Mock. Kelley brought his family to Port Columbus International Airport on April 17, 1964, to watch as the Newark native landed her Cessna 180 after a five-week, record-breaking flight. As the first woman to fly solo around the world, Mock should have her own statue to recognize her accomplishment, Kelley thought. But after the initial celebration of her return ended, Mock's story seemed to fade away.
