• 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.

If you had described to me, the Skybolt that you feature in the "Outline" part of your website, I would have not even bothered to look at it. Not in a million years would I have thought that those colors would look acceptable.

However, I cannot get over just how visually stunning that airplane is. Where is this plane from? Have you made aquaintence with the owner/builder? Is it located in the States? (I'm guessing no.)

I just think that it is a wonderful example of a non-traditional paint scheme. I wish I had the guts and talent to come up with stuff like that.
