1942 Boeing A75N1 Stearman

1942 Boeing A75N1 Stearman

Over 10,000 of these airplanes were built during the 1930s & 1940s. They were the mainstay of flight training for the US Military through WW2. The Stearman has appeared here a couple of times.

Imagine learning to fly in one of those Stearmans, Mom & Dad come to see you get your wings pinned on, then the next day they tell you go fly that P-38 Lightning, P-51 Mustang, or F6F Hellcat. Yikes!
Or you could even get a B-17 or B-24 bomber, a big jump from that Stearman.

I have a few hours in one. It's close to the most fun that I've ever had with my clothes on.
