Old Planes and Old Guys

I was outside this morning, working in the garden and what do I hear.  Nothing else sounds like one.   It can't be, but it was!   A beauty of a white Stearman circling the bunkhouse, after a while he flew off.   Then I see him again, being followed at a respectfull distance by an Ag Cat and two Air Tractors.  I don't know who he was, but he made my morning...
So I'm going into the weekend with this in mind...

  4. What a wonderful way to start my morning. I've a bit of time in an old Stearman with the R680 300 horse radial engine on her.

    Happy Mother's Day my friend.

  5. ALL: It was a Great weekend! Got a beautiful message from Marymine and the #1 son sent one as well. Visited with my mom & dad! Dinner with some of my grands, much laughter! And a sweet e-mail from my adopted Marines in the 'stan.

  6. The N2S Stearman (also known as the 'Yellow Peril') started out as a military trainer. There are still a lot of them flying and it's an aircraft that I've personally always wanted to own.

  7. LL: The one that flew over was in beautiful condition, and I assume on his way to a fly-in from his heading. I would be happy to have one close enough to catch a ride.
