• 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).

CHRISTEN EAGLE • $57,000 • AVAILABLE FOR SALE • 1981 Christen Eagle up for grabs. Yes the fabric is original 1981. The paint is pretty ugly and nothing to brag about. It flew 2000 miles to Oshkosh and back in 2017 so it is a solid airplane. 585 total time since new airframe and engine. Runs strong, good compressions. King KY 97A radio and KT 78A transponder both work well. Hookers in rear, Christen belts up front. Great smoke system! Prop overhauled in 2008, all new hoses and mags overhauled in 2010. API tailwheel. This is a nice flying Eagle, fly as is or make it like a new one. Again, this is not a show winner but a good solid Eagle. • Contact Shawn R. Hendrickson located Brenham, TX USA • Telephone: 979-451-3251

May not be the prettiest Eagle, but I still wish an AcroSport II was anywhere near an even trade!
