overhaul 1 / overhaul 2 / overhaul 3 / overhaul 4


In 2006 we started on a major overhaul
of the Boeing N2S-3 Stearman “Old Crow”
After her birth, in Wichita, Kansas USA in 1943,
she worked for many years and now she was tired. She needed maintenance.
Here is a photo series of the work.
We started in September 2006 and were ready in february 2008.
