Enjoy an exciting ride as the only passenger in a Stearman biplane. The Owls Head Transportation Museum would love for you to experience the thrill of this plane. Ask the 60,000 men who learned to fly during WWII in what plane they were taught and the answer will probably be the Stearman, nicknamed the "Yellow Peril". After the war, this plane was used as a crop duster, aerobatic performer and sport plane.
