Biplane Adventure

When people hear the word “biplane,” they typically imagine early 20th Century barnstormers and WWI pilots hand-dropping bombs from an open cockpit. And, they’d be right. But these two-winged "flying machines" also served in WWII as training and shipping transportation planes, and even saw occasional combat. And one hundred years later, these aviation showpieces are still in the air, wowing crowds with their acrobatic prowess at summer festivals and airshows. A wannabe pilots dream.
