• 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.

Here's some info on the first test flight of Butch Witlock's 80% scale Fokker D.VII
(Airdrome Aeroplane) kit plane. Designed by Robert Baslee. Filmed at the
2009 Gathering of Eagles in Gardner, Kansas. The power plant is a
Valley Engineering 2280CC VW with a 2.2:1 gear reduction and a 84X50
Culver prop. Tested piloted by Harvey Cleveland.

(This is the second D7 built & flown using the kit)


I was there too, and help with the test flight. Here are some pics:
