I gave my PT-17 Stearman Blu to Triple Tree Aerodrome to promote their new youth program, lots of kids and attention and good company.
More than 10,000 Stearman Kaydets were produced, making them the best known and perhaps most admired American biplane.
Whether Army trainer, crop duster, or modern barnstormer, Stearman’s are a delight to fly. Whether Army trainer, crop duster, or modern barnstormer, Stearman’s are a delight to fly and cherished by all of us who are fortunate to be caretakers of them.
Triple Tree has a wonderful book about Ben Templeton’s solo trip around the country in his Cub. Ben is now flying rides in my Stearman, which makes me quite happy.
Gary Peter’s Hangar 180 at Lewiston Airport is where you can find my Speedmail Model 4. Here is a good article about Gary’s collection. https://www.lmtribune.com/northwest/flying-old-school/article_c9bd760e-d53d-5718-9d35-b22a1b7a7d9f.html
