• 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.

Name that plane...

Was wondering, can anyone identify this aircraft type?

I bought the photo on Ebay and know nothing about it.

Mightbe a mid-air collision with another wrecked aircraft behind it. The other aircraft has an unusual rudder (might be a bent horiz) and possibly an inline engine.

It's also possible that the white aircraft was damaged landing near the other wreck.

Reg# is NC2436. Back of photo is handwritten "Summer 1940".


And thank you!
