• 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.

I saw my 'first flight' onSunday...only to see it crash :0|

It was one of those canard long eze types. Franklin engine, builder-designed injection etc. Plane stayed at about 400ft then disappeared from my view. Pilot/builder is OK and walking. Not sure of the damage to the plane tho, it 'looks' reasonable, tho that doesn't mean it is. Possible fuel starvation. The poor guy had been building it for 13 years....
