When I photographed this stunning 450 hp Stearman, owned by the Vintage Aircraft Co., I could not believe my good fortune. It had recently had some work done on it. It is very, very impressive in person. Vintage Aircraft Co. has three of them and it offers rides. Check out Vintage Aircraft's website
for a lot more information. This plane was photographed at the Sonoma Valley Airport at Schellville in Sonoma County.
These photos were taken before I purchased professional cameras and/or lenses and were edited on an older monitor. In the future, I will re-edit these photos.
