• The Biplane Forum is a large global active community of biplane builders, owners and pilots. From Pitts to Skybolts, to older barnstormers, all types are welcome. In addition to our active community, our content boasts exhaustive technical information which is often sought after for projects and maintenance. This information has accumulated over the 12+ years the forum has been in existence.

    The Biplane Forum is a private community. Subscriptions are only $49.99/year or $6.99/month to gain access to this great community and unmatched source of information not found anywhere else on the web. We are also a great resource for non biplane users, since many GA aircraft are built the same way (fabric and tube construction). Annual membership also comes with two BiplaneForum.com decals.

While watching some of the YouTube videos on the Weeks Special thread, I came across videos from the 1980 WACs in Oshkosh. I also found several videos on the Hilton Masters of Aerobaics. I was not familiar with the latter. It appears to be an IROC type competition. Not very good TV (trying to talk to the non pilot audience and Chuck doesnā€™t know a lot about completion flying šŸ˜³) but lots of cool airplanes.

I really got a kick out of watching the competitions at Oshkosh. Take a good look at the Airventure grounds in the videos. None of the four large pavilions, no IAC barn, hardly anything we would recognize today.
