    Two seats, open cockpits, and four ailerons. Everything else negotiable!

    Still selling my 1972 Starduster Too. 180hp Lycoming with fixed pitch prop. Beautiful airplane. Only about 475hrs TT engine and airframe. Garmin GTR-200 comm and 327 transponder. Its just not practical for me to own this airplane as I move around every 3-6 months. Asking $25k. Message me for more details and questions. Its in Sacramento, CA. Owner Kirk Hamilton

    I’m in Ohio. Getting an open biplane across the Rockies, during winter, could be more adventurous than I want. Gorgeous airplane, though!

    You just fly down to Los Angeles and then go east on I-10 through El Paso. Way lower and warmer.

    I was once told to fly south until you can take your jacket off, look for a pass and turn left.

    I flew my 450 Stearman from CA last May/June. Best flight I’ve done to date. I’d do it again if you need help bringing one out. I have a SDII as well doing checkouts in GA for fun. Great planes.

    Hire Tom Braymer to ferry it. He loves cold weather and is a damn good pilot.
    He ferried my Cub, Pitts and 2 Eagles.

    In Ohio there is a starduster hiding in the main hangar at Wyncoop in Mt Vernon. I think those guys meet up on Saturdays. Maybe worth asking about?
