PT-13 / PT-17 / N2S Kaydet (multiple)

I photographed several Boeing-Stearman Kaydet variants such as the PT-17 Kaydet during the Gathering of Fortresses show near Detroit, an N2S “Yellow Peril” at the NASM’s Udvar-Hazy facility, a Boeing Model 75 in Olympia, and a PT-13 at the NMoUSAF. I used one of my shots of the Stearman at Falcon Field to make some beautiful digital art. Note the wing walker stuntman on the Kaydet flying in Sequim.
