• 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).

Buyer couldn't come through, for sale again...O-290G that came off my my Cougar project that has 41 hours on it. There are no log books to back up that info though. It has both mags, fuel pump, vacuum pump, and tach drive. The airplane last flew in 1995, and it sat in the desert southwest until I brought it to Wisconsin a few weeks ago.
