• 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).

Another request for information! I'm sorry...


Some more very old, fadedphotos I acquired. These 3 photos from a photo album and are marked just "Fred Grieme's Crack-Up".


I have no idea the date, location, or aircraft type. I know that Fred Grieme was a well-known aviator/barnstormer in the teens & 20s, later an airport administrator with CAB.


Does anyone have any information about this crash?


Appears to have a water-cooled machine gun mounted on the wing, or an MG mount. I am assuming it was an Army aircraft?


THANK YOU!!!
