Wow, great find! I've never heard of this plane before, and it's even by Kelly Johnson too!

right i got the jet even now for the bi-plane and have a few guesses for it so here it goes is it a:
Waco GXE 10?
Davis D-1-K?
Curtiss Wright Travel Air 12-W?
Arrow Sport Pursuit ?
American Eagle A-1?
im guessing here since i cant see the shape of the tail fin in the posted pics. and all of these have radials fitted.

Ok, I'm not sure if all previous aircraft have been identified, or if this has been up before but here's one I just found and it seemed like a possibly tough one.

Fleet is the answer, soooooooooo----BEERS AND STRIPPERS FOR GIBBO ::drinking::

And we won't be flying it unless it's annualed  BEFORE we sell it (but that's not likely) ::banghead::

Sweet Airtac, I love Bipes!  And bush bipes are just too darn cute.  :-*

Frank, not a clue, but it looks like it should be called the "Newly weds".   ::rofl::
