The Stearman Aircraft Company became a subsidiary of Boeing in 1934 with more than 10,600 built in the 1930s and 1940s. These aircraft became a primary trainer for both the USAAF and USN. The USAAF labeled the aircraft the PT-13 and PT-17 while the USN called it the NS-1 and N2S. The Stearman was commonly called the "Yellow Peril" referring to the bright yellow paint used on the majority of these aircraft. This Stearman was Bu.No 39123/73 and one of the 1,875 delivered to the USN.

Boeing N2S-3 Stearman

Designed as a primary trainer, the Stearman Kaydet was first flown in 1933. Prior to their aquisition by Boeing in 1934, the Stearman Aircraft Company developed a series of rugged biplane designs that culminated in the immensely successful Model 75 Kaydet, more commonly referred to as the "Stearman". The aircraft was adopted by the US Army Air Corps and US Navy as their primary trainer during World War II. The simple and robust design made surplus Stearmans a popular choice for crop dusters after the type was retired from the military and, in fact, a large number of airworthy examples still exist to this day.
