Great photo!!

That is my old Staggerwing. I rebuilt the aircraft in the 1970's, and sold it. I had heard that it had ended up in South America. It still looks good. It was NC19466 in the US.

Mow, that's an airplane!

A great Airplane, I saw a restored one at Sun & Fun several years ago, would love to be able to fly one.

Beauty!
sal derosa
That’s a beauty in the sky! I’ll bet she’s a powerful flyer with that radial out front!!
CRAIG MESHAW
Beautiful! I could have bought a used one back in the early sixties in Norfolk, Va for $3,000. Or, a J-3 Piper Cub for $300 in the fifties.
Dennis Bishop
One of the most beautiful general aviation aircraft ever built.

We had one of these based at LAL in the 60's - 70's. The owner used it for aerial photography. Did catch a ride once and I still have a wooden prop that was to have come off that aircraft. Beautiful, Malcome Soare................

Not sure about racing, but was told they had a horizontal prop brake installed and could belly land with little damage if done carefully.
Chris Bryant
Is it my old eyes, or does it look like the prop is pointed down slightly?
I'm assuming that's an engineering advantage of some sort.

@Chris -- I think your referring to the thrust line. The negative thrust pulls the nose down to avoid using the elevator to level the pitch line to the horizon. It's the same effect used on RC models -- aerodynamics are the same.
