• 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.

I spent the last two days inspecting a plane that I had intended to purchase and I am now up in the air as to whether or not I should move forward. The lower wings of this otherwise nice biplane had mouse urine, nests and droppings through out. I cleaned out all the nests I could see,inspected closely and found little actual damage or rusty parts, but the smell of urine very strong. Will the urine affect the life of the dacron? How does one clean up this kind of mess? Should I look elsewhere?
