Here in the mountains winter is finally coming to a close. A friend just posted this professionally produced video of his modified 450 Stearman...and its twin...enjoying a scenic flight. https://m.youtube.com/watch?feature=youtu.be&v=MshYN0wbeOQ The pair are Stearmans modified with a 450 engine, raised turtledeck and canopy, 4-wing ailerons and a 1930s-style USN colour scheme. They look a bit like a fixed gear Grumman F2F or similar fighters of the period. The aeroplanes are being flown by their owners/builders Addison Pemberton and Randy Ingrham. Plus, there are some shots of a 1936 WACO Custom Cabin and a Stearman Speedmail mail plane. Hope you enjoy...

Beautiful video, very atmospheric with the music. Thanks. What's the city they fly over with the road flyover.

Spokane, Washington. One scene shows them flying over the river and the large Riverfront Park downtown. The rural scenes were photographed near my home. The aircraft are based at Felts Field there.
