• 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.

A few years ago, I helped a good friend re-cover his Skybolt after a ground-loop accident bent the fuselage.  We tried to take as many photos as possible, and I've posted many of them on my website.  Please feel free to browse the photos and save them at will.  I hope they are helpful to anyone currently working on a Skybolt project.

The plane has since been sold, but if anyone has any questions, I can try to answer.  Just let me know.
