Great Lakes Biplane For Sale
When a unique airplane comes up for sale and deserves a good home... I just have to spread the word... Dan
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.
