Exceptional 1977 Great Lakes 2T-1A-2 offered for sale. The Great Lakes is a wonderful biplane and is a very capable entry into moderate level aerobatics, that is also fun to fly low and slow with the wind on your face. It will do everything a Stearman does, but fits in a t-hangar and only burns 10gph. It can easily be rolled in and out of the hangar with one person.
