• 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 have recently purchased a Pitts S-1T and will be packing it up in my 20' car trailer and bringing it home. Sorry, no time/space to build. My question to the group is: What is the best way to transport the airplane without breaking anything? My main concern is protecting the wings from any damage. Since the space is tight, the wings will have to be transported vertically. Any suggestions will be appreciated.
