    Hey Pops, does that Stampe have any Canadian history? Long before I knew him, a friend restored one that IIRC looked an awful lot like that.

    Not sure, but, I'll ask my neighbor. Guessing, I would say yes. I really like it, just the right size for a fun bi-plane. My neighbor and I went to a little north of D.C. to look at another Stampe with a Lyc-360. I have the plans for the engine mount for the Lyc engine. Love to have one.
    He sold this one and it went back to Spain where it was built. Serial #90.

    Thruxton Jackaroo has four swept wings and four seats. … conversion of WW2-surplus deHavilland Tiger Moth.

    Meanwhile, DH Fox Moth has four swept wings and four seats in the main cabin, but the pilot's head is still out in the breeze.

    OK, I'll play. What's the only single-engine biplane you're likely to see carrying five people in open cockpits?

    Jackaroo, yeah, it has 4 seats. The Fox moth technically has 5: 4 plus the pilot’s perch in the open cockpit.

    The pre-war Foxmoths took 3 in the cabin, the post war DH83c took 4 "then" people.

    One of the big biplanes that are giving rides to people at the airshows and county fairs these days... can't remember which one... but I believe there is room for two smaller people in the front and three smaller people in the back??? I can't remember which old biplane this is, but there are one or two of them out there making a living today, using something like a 985 engine or something.

    EDIT: D-25 New Standard biplane, advertised as being able to carry up to four passengers, and assuming there is a pilot in addition to that.

    Powered by a Lawrance engine of 28 HP, this parasol airplane was advertised for sale at $1,200, but never went onto production. “Buck” Weaver flew it almost in 100 years ago. Its descendants remain in production today.

    Name the airplane and the company.

    I don’t want to just steal the thread but this parasol was later a biplane, right?

    Since nobody else said it, it’s the WACO Cootie.


    How about another couple? A few years ago I was down in Mena, Arkansas and taxied past an open hangar with three airplanes inside. At first glance all three looked like popular sport planes but then I noticed they weren’t.

    -One was a light twin trainer with a T-tail but it wasn’t a Seminole.

    -One was a four place low wing single engine with retractable tricycle gear and a distinctive squat stance on the ground, but it wasn’t a Mooney.

    -One was a high wing with windows all the way around the cabin and fixed tricycle gear but it wasn’t a Cessna 172.

    What airplanes did I see?

    Duh! The Duchess. I forgot about that one. Trivia; Martin Caidin flew one to OSH after he sold his JU-52.
