You've read the books and met the characters, now come see the planes that inspired the stories! Get up close to our reproduction of the 1931 Gee Bee Z, the inspiration for the character "Zee" in "All of Life Is A School" and see how science helped us solve one of aviation's mysteries. While you're here, be sure to check out the planes that inspired some of the other book characters including: "Spirit of St. Louis", "Miss Los Angeles", and the Gee Bee R-2. See the colorful characters of the Golden Age of Aviation at home in the Fantasy of Flight hangars.
 
Look What's Flying Now
Sopwith Snipe 
Stinson L-1  
Sopwith Snipe
One of only two flyable Sopwith Snipes in the entire WORLD!! Kermit took the Snipe on its first test flight since being reassembled, on July 10th. Flown for 12 minutes this aircraft is a reproduction featuring the original Bentley rotary engine. After a few tweaks to the wires, we look forward to seeing it fly again. Keep an eye out for a Kermie Cam detailing the view from the cockpit of one of the few remaining  flyable WWI aircrafts.
1941 Stinson Vultee L-1E
After enduring the wrath of Hurricane Andrew in 1992, we assessed the damage to the Stinson L-1 and the decision was made to completely restore the aircraft. We are happy to report our former movie star is gracing the skies again in all its original glory.
