Nancy with her favorite PT-17

I have been flying for over 20 years and own and pilot a 1940 Stearman PT-17. I do aerobatics and fly to airshows to display my airplane in honor of the WASP who flew them during WWII.

My list of taildraggers flown includes J-3 Cubs, Champs, Decathlons, B-17, Ford Tri-Motor and Beech 18s but I received my tailwheel endorsement in the Stearman and it’s my favorite to fly!!



Here are some of my favorite B-17G Flying Fortress taildragger photos, one of my favorite taildraggers to fly!!



Happy Landings,

    What an absolutely great photo. Reminds me of something from the golden age of aircraft.

    BTW: Where did you find the fatigue cap with the star and bars?
