    First time in an open cockpit aircraft. Like being in a convertible with top down.:D
    We flew at 2000ft/610m altitude. Took some photos with my phone, but they are horrible.

    Old design that keeps on ticking. That thing has so much lift. It seemed like we moved about 15m and it was leaving the ground already. When we got back the pilot told me it was very capable of aerobatics. I am going back for a trackless rollercoaster ride.

    Awesome! When I see those planes I just want to climb up and stand on it like the old time stunt guys... or Elon Musk [​IMG]

    Just saw this thread. We went to Fantasy of Flight a few years back and went for a ride in Waldo's Bi-plane. Off of the ground at 30 mph.
