Boeing-Stearman Model 75 (PT-13D)

@Hollister Municpal Airport, Hollister, CA

June 2016

Smaller airshows and fly-ins are one way of gaining some variety in my aviation photography and this weekend’s Hollister Airshow did not disappoint.  Here a Stearman is silhouetted against the early morning flight line with a Travel Air in the background.  Introduced in 1934, over 10,000 of these classic aircraft were produced as primary trainers for several military services.  This particular Stearman was delivered in 1944.  Nikon D7100 w/18-200mm, processed with Aperture.
