Some 'new' aircraft at Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome

September 23, 2001


New Stampe

1948 Stampe SV4C

The aircraft pictured above is Gene DeMarco's 'new' Stampe SV 4. As you can see it is beautiful. Gene won the toilet paper cutting exhibition again on September 23, 2001 (Four cuts). He was competing with the Tiger Moth and I believe the Fleet.
The Stampe was a Belgium built aircraft but was flown in many countries.

    This old aircraft sure looks great--I never have captured this angle before illustrating the beautiful blue paint on the top of the wings. More to come soon!
