Almost a book review.
Great as always !
What Stearman is that, as there are a few nice ones out there? It sure looks great and I like the modern helmet the pilot is wearing. Thanks for the fun video.
I LOVE your reviews. They always make me smile. I feel like I'm sitting in a room with you, just leisurely watching you play the sim and talk about the plane in detail. Always loved your work.
Quite nice, always had a soft spot for the Stearman as my dad took his primary flight training in one during WWII. I did gather that they were a bit of a handfull to land and possibly not totally viceless as he said they lost about 5% of the students in fatal accidents, a rate unacceptable today, but merely a bad mission by the standards of the day. That might include mid-airs.....
Many today are painted in bright colors, at the time he said yellow, just yellow.
Cheers nice film! T

Nice plane....makes me wonder what the upcoming Vertigo Stearman has in mind.

Great vid Mark, a great job as always, and a great aircraft as well. One of my favorites.
Thanks all for the nice comments. Yes, this is the GAS Stearman, recently resurrected from my archives after I discovered the elevator trim does work properly after all (if something seems broke, it's always best to try adjusting the nut behind the joystick first). GAS doesn't have a 'Yellow Peril' livery, so I too will be eager to see what Vertigo comes up with both in terms of modelling and in paint schemes offered. And not to mention Microsoft, whose subtle hints are making me wonder if Flight might just have a Stearman as one of its base aircraft...
Mark, can you e-mail me please sir?
