One of the joys of being a volunteer at the Omaka AHC is to be so close to History. The engine was warming-up (beautiful noise) at the time so it was a little breezy for close-ups.

Biplane modelers - look at that big connection surface between the wing struts and the wings - nice huge sturdy pins in deep mounting holes...be fun to-scale in 1/72

Karl, nice selection of expert images.
