A Bitterly Cold Biplane Encounter

As part of my development of PilotWingsTV on YouTube, this short featured a few unique perspectives captured during a recent flight in a 1940s vintage Boeing Stearman biplane.

In almost sub-zero temperatures taking off from a field in Essex enroute Old Buckenham near Norwich, this routine maintenance ferry flight introduced me to the kind of battle with the elements that pilots must have often endured in early 20th Century.
