• 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 $29.95/year 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).

Not a criticism, but a comment from a years-long peruser of Barnstormers: ads that don't include a shot of the panel (where I will spend most of my time "looking at" the airplane) are a much harder sell for me. Particularly when explicitly mentioning a CF panel, I'd be excited to see that, and disappointed when it wasn't available.

Check the ad now. An older picture but I can always update it.

VSI? You have got to be kidding me. :D
I agree, pointless but it was there when I bought it. I would much rather have a remote comm radio mounted there and get rid of the radio box and put a header tank there.

Updated ad.

For anyone looking for a Pitts jump at this opportunity. I've seen this plane many times in person and it is a treat. Kevin treats it like his baby. I hope it goes to a good home.

I had a look at this machine up close a few times. It's immaculate, Kevin spends most of his weekends polishing it and singing it lullabies.

Seriously, I know how much time and effort he's spent making sure it's in top condition and I'd buy it if I were in the S1 market.

The airplane also has some good history. It has earned a couple of National Championships and Kevin earned the L Paul Soucy trophy.

Which begs the question. Is the next ship a Lazer? MX? Yak?

Best of luck,

Wes

It would be nice to sell it to someone on the forum so I could keep track of it.

Wes,
Yes, Joe Haycraft, the previous owner won numerous IAC National Championships and numerous L. Paul Soucy awards as well as other awards flying 427RD. Great flying Pitts and ready for competition or fun flying.
