Resurrecting A Dream

A restored Staggerwing fulfills a fatherís wish
by James Wynbrand, Plane & Pilot Magazine

When they first heard that mention of a Staggerwing, Mark and Ron had already been introduced to aviation through the Western Airlines flying club. But 35 years ago the Staggerwing was more a curious relic than a venerated classic, not as widely recognized as it is today.

Staggerwing

Beech's Beautiful Biplane
by Thomas A. Horne, AOPA Pilot, October 1999

For most pilots, the Beechcraft Staggerwing reigns as the classic to beat all classics. Born in the depths of the Depression, this airplane set performance and style benchmarks that stood the general aviation world on its ear. For that matter, it still does. From its smooth, stately form and unusual wing design to its 200-mph-plus top speed, the Staggerwing is truly a unique blend of art deco and modern. It's a transitional airplane, perched on the cusp between the frail-looking, open-cockpit biplanes that came before it and the speedy, all-metal monocoque designs that were to follow.
