• 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.

Reading the Skybolt Newsletter I came upon a snippet about an award that was given to the builder who made the biggest mistake in the building of their Skybolt.
It continued.... "The prize went to a fellow aeronut whom I know would rather remain anonymous. He sold his Skybolt fuselage and wings and bought a set of plans for a Starduster. He won the prize hands down."

No offense to Starduster builders/owner. Just thought it was funny... I was expecting to read something that I had done. haha
