Stearman Fly-In Under Way

Stearman Fly-In Under Way

Airplanes were built to soar, not collect dust in a hangar.

That’s what makes the six-day-long National Stearman Fly-In, which started here in Galesburg, Ill., on Labor Day, different from many other warbird reunions.

Most of the Stearmans brought to Galesburg are flown every day. They’re definitely not “hangar queens” or museum pieces.

The Stearmans — most are between 70 and 80 years old — won a place in history during World War II, launching more military pilots into the air than any other series of primary trainers ever built.
