(c/n 75- xxx)
This entry should rightfully be
indexed under "B" for Boeing, since in 1939 the Stearman
Aircraft Company became the Wichita Division
of the Boeing Airplane Company. However,
folks still refer to them merely as "Stearmans". In
my Classics section I deal with this
type in some detail, (see Boeing Stearman A75N1) and
merely illustrate the example above
as a variation to the standard
machine in that it has been modified for single seat operation.
The "Sky Game" outfit had several of them at the
Orange County Airport (now JohnWayne
and used them for banner towing and skywriting.
