Rare M-2 Bull Stearman takes back to the air

Alan Lopez’s rare Stearman M-2 flew on July 20 at Robbinsville Airport, NJ, where the biplane was restored by the Posey Brothers. The aircraft was found in a lake by Bob Cameron many years ago. The first flight was uneventful and further testing will be undertaken. According to Antique Airfield News, this is the first time a Bull Stearman has flown since October 8, 1938.

A video of the first landing is also available as well as pictures of the aircraft.

Update: a video of the second flight is now available on YouTube:
