• 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).

Hey Clemens, do you know if the guy in Wellington that bought Tom's S-2A ever did anything with it? Restore it?

Don't know. I check the number from time to time. No idea. It's a shame, though. That was a great airplane. N53078.

I do the same thing. Even sent a message to the apparent owner on FB but no reply. Hope it's made new again and stays in the states.

Good luck on your S-2 hunt. What are your plans with it? I know of a local A that never gets flown. It needs a little wing walk repair but otherwise appears pretty nice shape. I think it is the last one built on short gear though (#2105 IIRC).

That S2 N-number got my attention, was close to the C150 N50738 that I got my PPL in 1971.

Not to hijack your thread but this makes me sad as 50738 was lost 20 years later:
