Stearman 3440 is serial number 104. It was the 4th and last stearman built in Venice, and is the only survivor, which makes it the worlds oldest stearman. Stearmans partner George Lyle was the first owner. The plane was on the coast of Washington being used for charter thru the 1930’s then came to Spokane and was stored for many yrs. Skeeter Carlson acquired it in the 50’s and restored it 2 different times ,and flew it until 2006 when I acquired it. I restored it in 2 yrs and flew it in 1998 The plane is in Spokane totally restored after some incidents and is flying fine.
