An Unmatched Experience of Aerial Delight in the ‘Silver Queen’
“Silver Queen” is a beautiful Boeing Stearman with a Lycoming R-680 300-horse power 9-cylinder radial engine.
We cruise along at about 115 mph, usually around 1200 feet above the surface, the perfect altitude and speed to appreciate all that you’ll see.
Originally built in 1942 as a WW II primary trainer, ‘Silver Queen’ has modified to meet modern standards and for added performance.
Happy Passengers Guaranteed Two-hour Smile During and After the Flight.
