The collectible model PT-17 Stearman represents one of the most popular biplanes ever built.

The PT-17 Stearman dates back to the 1930s, when the Stearman Company developed its X-70 prototype. The X-70 would go on to form the basis of the PT-13, PT-15, PT-18 and PT-27 trainers. Boeing, which bought the Stearman Company in 1934, would go on to produce almost 10,000 examples of this rugged aircraft.
As the PT-17, the Stearman known as the Kaydet in export versions was powered by a Continental R-670 engine of 220 horsepower. An open cockpit biplane, the Stearman had a top speed of 124 mph and a range of 505 miles.
The navy version, the N2S, became known as the Yellow Peril because of its overall bright yellow paint. Navy versions included the N2S-2, with the R-680 engine, and the most common Navy variant, the N2S-3 and N2S-4, with the R-670 engine.
After the war, thousands of Stearman biplanes were sold as surplus, and Stearmans became the most common postwar crop dusters. Hundreds of Stearmans still fly today.
