• 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.

The trailing edge on my lower right wing cracked between the 2nd and 3rd ribs. This is in the outer edge of the prop blast area.
I have been told it may have been due to prop blast turbulance.
Has anyone else had this problem ?? Is there a known cure ? I suspect it may have been initiated by improper handling, i.e. someone moved the plane by pushing/lifting on the trailing adge.
