dood that's pretty sick, i saw the redbull air race this year up in SF and they were doing stunts with some planes that looked similar.

i think the only pilots here are E90 pilots

Not a pilot, but I do have a degree in Aeronautics and Astronautics.

Lovely 'plane RBBMWE46M3 and great to see one still with a cowling and not converted to a dirty great P&W engine. How much of it's history do you know?

I'm a pilot. Did the civilian thing for a while--commercial pilot, flight instructor, corporate/charter, then airline until 9/11. Now I'm an Air Force instructor. Flown T-6A, T-38C, T-37. The T-38C (picture) is my favorite. Gonna fly F-15s or F-16s next. Indiana, huh? If you're offering rides, I could fly up to Indiana.

I guess it depends on where you live in Indiana. In the North West part where I live it really is not too bad. We really are just another suburb of Chicago ( where I work and my business is located) The property taxes in Indiana are a whole lot less than in Illinois. I own a 12,000 sq ft home and my property taxes are only 9000. The same house in lets say Oakbrook Illinois would be probably three times that of mine. I don't live in a city. So I guess to answer your question...not bad

I think that there were a lot of people who wanted to do just that. From memory the bulldozers went in during the night and ploughed up the runway. No notice, and regardless of all the aircraft that were still parked there!

I've never seen a P&W converted Stearman over here with a cowling RBBMWE46M3, looks so much better. There are some great modern designs around, but there's something special about a big radial.

How we normally see the Stearman locally.....

I do it for fun and a living. Use to fly beech 1900D back in my days, if that counts as an over size king air.
