Stearman #03 is owned and operated by Brown Aviation, LLC of Warrenton, VA. It is an original aircraft, built by Boeing in 1941 and used by the U.S. Army Air Corps as a pilot training aircraft during WWII. After the war it was sold as government surplus and was used for many years as a crop duster in the southwestern United States. It was later restored back to its original military configuration and color scheme from 1941. The aircraft is currently based at the Warrenton Airport and can be seen regularly flying in the Flying Circus Air Show in Bealeton Virginia every Sunday each year from May through October.
Experience the thrill of open cockpit flying in an authentic Stearman biplane. The Stearman is truly one of the most classic biplanes and most famous training aircraft of time.

(I loved this comment and had to post it. Once you fly in the Stearman…you will see what this pilot was feeling. Dave)
