But that’s what it says it is under that very image I found for it on the internet. Are you saying the internet is wrong? I’m going to have to have a lie down.

Ok let’s end this circle jerk. This aircraft is identified with two model types both built by Great Lakes Aviation which went bankrupt in the Great Wall Street Crash in the 1930’s. It’s now being rolled back out today as an aerobatic craft by Waco Classic AIrcraft. Multiple sources list this plane as the “VH-WQW” others ID it as a “Great Lakes Sport model 2T-1A-2”. Both @dush19 & @Leodhasach where right. Mr. Srinivasan was first! Max Sends


It’s a very nice looking beast too. Far more interesting to look at than the usual pedestrian run of bland Airbuses and Boeings.
