We have a new video of a cut away Lycoming R-680-9 Radial Engine. This is a similar engine that we have on our Stearman.
We have posted a new article by Barry Schiff for AOPA about our Curtiss Robin. It's a great story about this proud bird. You can read the article here. Click on Articles.
Here is a wonderful video of our Cessna AW. Enjoy
So what is a ground loop and why are tail wheel airplanes so hard to fly?

We have assembled a collection of very rare aircraft and engines. Many are the only examples left in flying condition. The collection consists of vintage aircraft ranging from 1917 to 1944 and engines starting from 1910. On a nice day you may even see the aircraft flying. This is a flying collection of aircraft, not a static collection. It is our hope to educate the public, flying or not, about these wonderful machines and the brave men and women who flew them. Without these pioneers, we would not have the luxury of our current air travel system.
In addition to the vintage aircraft and engines, we also have a display of vintage airplane related paraphernalia such as toys, signs, posters and pictures.
Many of the airplanes on display were flown when important developments were occurring in early aviation. For instance:
- Ms. Louise Thaden set the world record in a Travel Air 3000.
- Ms Elinor Smith set a world altitude and endurance record in a Bellanca CH400.
- Early airmail was carried in a Pitcairn PA6 Super Mail Wing.
- The Wright J5 engine used on the PA6 was also the engine that carried Lindbergh across the Atlantic and the Woolaroc across the Pacific.
- Stearman, Beech and Cessna all founded the Travel Air Company. Two planes are on display including the only remaining Travel Air 10D.
- Ms. Elinor Smith flew a Waco GXE under all four bridges on the East River at the age of 17 to be arrested. She had to appear before Mayor Jimmy Walker in NYC. A 1928 Waco GXE is on display.
- Here is a fun video from an air circus. Gladys Ingle of the 13 BLACK CATS changes planes in mid-air to replace a lost wheel.
