• 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.

John Parker's Thunder Mustang was involved in a high speed abort accident at Reno Stead on Monday evening, around 1710. The airplane veered off the runway safely but the hot brakes ignited a fire that quickly consumed the entire aircraft. John is safe but the Thunder Mustang is no more.

The Sport Class is already mourning the loss of one of its most loved and renowned aircraft. Most racers will be arriving at Reno in less than a week. It is just not going to be the same without John's familiar blue P-51 replica competing for the Gold.
