The Heights We Go To...

Veteran Kitplanes writer / photographer Tom Wilson is seen here, working on a cover shot for an upcoming Retro Flight Review of the Starduster - a still popular plans-built aerobatic biplane. As Tom likes to point out, sometimes, you have to go to great heights to get just the right angle. Kitplanes recognizes that while the latest and greatest designs are always popular, many builders continue to lust over designs they have followed for years. These airplanes are our heritage and the foundation of the homebuilding world, and deserve just as much coverage for those who want to feel the wind in their hair and see the world through struts and wires.
