Boeing/Stearman N2S-3/PT-17 (Kaydet)
This aircraft’s fuselage frame is built of tubular steel and the wings are built using Aircraft Spruce. Then both are covered with fabric and painted in several coats of paint. This yields a very strong, light weight construction developed at the beginning of aircraft manufacturing. The craftsmanship needed is truly artistic.
Open to the Public:
Tuesday through Saturday
10:00 AM to 4:00 PM
