Hello there

I have a request for an awesome aircraft. On some occasions I go to an airpark near Ankara in Turkey and they have this boeing stearman (I am not sure which model but probably the 75) with tailnumber TC-AMK. I remember when they first flew the aircraft under turkish registration about 2 years ago and the guys told me it is the oldest still flying aircraft registered i Turkey. The aircraft was originally manufactured in 1930. The Stearman 75 was designed by Stearman Aircraft Corporation which later became a subsidiary of Boeing. It was used for mail cargo and military training but later they fitted it with guns and bombs and they exchanged the engine with a more powerful one. They then changed the name of this fighter version as model 76. The guys here in Turkey uses it for air display and aerobatics though. It is an absolute joy for the eye and it would be an excellent aircraft for the repertoire of Dogfight.

Here is a link about some history of the aircraft:
www.stearman.at/boeing_stearman.html
The same site akso has technical information on the aircraft.

Please consider it. Thanks

I think a Stearman was one of the first plastic model kits I built as a kid. B)

Then you must agree that it is one cool vintage aircraft! It is not like I am asking for the P-51 Mustang or the Corsair F4U, no the Stearman is actually in league with the other aircraft already available in the game. I hope Zuperman sees this topic and considers this aircraft.

Yes, it's a pretty sweet plane. BTW, you can already have the P-51 . . . now if we can talk him into a Corsair. B)
