    The 2nd flight I took was in a Beechcraft Staggerwing in 1964, and sadly the only biplane i've ever flown in. It belonged to my brother in law's uncle.

    I built a balsa wood model of it to be powered by a .19 engine, about 30" wingspan, control line. But after all that work, I never flew it.

    Nice Mauld! We used one in the RNZAF during the second world war.
