Stearman Model 4 N667K

Sarah Wilson flew her newly restored Stearman Model 4E "Junior Speedmail" N667K through Dallas a few weeks ago.  The Stearman was on display at the Cavanugh Flight Museum so I took the time to visit the museum and snap a few photographs.  This rare Stearman was operated by Richfield Oil Company from 1929 to 1937 and wears the unique markings featuring the Richfield Eagle.  Jim Kimball Enterprises completed another amazing restoration with this Stearman.  See the photos below for the level of detail that went into this rare beauty.  Thank you to Sarah for saving and restoring this aviation treasure.
