The N2S-3 Stearman, N44JP is progressing nicely. We have completely stripped the aircraft down to the absolute minimum, reconditioned or replaced all that was lacking and needing attention. No stone has been left unturned. This will be a very original, stock restoration. This aircraft was actually based and did its service at NAS Ottumwa, Iowa. At one point in its life this airplane sat apart in Jamacia! Funny how these things get around and how they can come full circle. Welcome back the the midwest old training friend. Perhaps we'll get you close to your old home for a visit this year during the AAA fly in or on your way home.
