• 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).

Hi Jeffery,
I get a quote for shipping that seems to be ok.
I get also the agreement from children (easy) and wife (more difficult... but ok !)
So now, I need your answer:
question #1:
do you accept to saw in two the upper wing (I do prefer the model D)
and put all the parts in the container when it'll arrive at Glen St.Mary and secure them
in less than two hours. The floor of the container will be 4ft off the floor.

question #2:
how can I send you the money (western union, paypal, or ?)

1. What are the internal dimensions of the container? Will this be the only thing in the container
2. I'll cut the wing in half for an additional charge of $250.00, only after the money is in my account. There is a degree of difficulty with the wing tank installed.
3 I'll need a two day notice of when the container arrives.
4. You may send the money by the cheapest available means. I do have a pay-pal account.
5. I wiil attempt the two hour window.

Internal dimensions of the container are:
-length: 19'4''
-width: 7'8''
-height: 7'9''
Door openings:
-height:7'5''
-width:7'8''
The Skybolt will be alone in the container.
I will be able to send you the money in a week.

Hi Jeff! I shipped a Pitts S-2a To Australia in a container of those dimensions and was able to get the top wing in without cutting it, just lifted one end up and angled it corner to corner. Every thing fit in including the engine. Bunk

All factory Pitts S-2 models have a 20 foot wingspan.
