First Stearman Ride

Mon Apr 19, 2010 3:27 pm

Not sure if this is the right form, but took my first ride in a Boeing/Stearman Kaydet this weekend. Weather was crappy so we only did a loop and two hammerheads(one left and on right). WHAT A THRILL. Nothing better than an open cockpit doing a loop. Was grinning for an hour afterwards.

Very cool! I've always wanted to do that. I've rode in a Sorrell Hyperbipe but it wasn't open cockpit and we didn't do aerobatics. Someday!

Too cool, Dan! Got a Stearman ride a couple of years ago - flew out of a grass airfield, cruised along the beaches of Long Island at 100 feet and 80 knots, a great time! A Stearman ride is definitely something I would recommend to anyone.
