stearman-c3


Lloyd Stearman built his model C3B biplanes in the late 1920s and this design was developed into a primary trainer for the US Army Air Force.

The Stearman biplane aircraft were well known in agricultural aviation, with the C3BR of the ‘20s being fitted with a 450-hp Pratt & Whitney Wasps or Wright Cyclones.
