WACO Classic Aircraft builds, in relatively small numbers, this three-seat biplane, the WACO Classic YMF, based upon the original Waco Aircraft Company plans.  The 1934 model YMF was substantially redesigned with a longer and wider fuselage, larger rudder and other structural changes, and put into production in March 1986. Named “The Spirit of Adventure II”, this example was produced in 1994 and is seen here landing during the 2011 Pacific Coast Dream Machines Show.  “The Spirit of Adventure I” was an identical YMF that suffered an unfortunate landing accident that totaled the aircraft, so the owner used his insurance settlement to buy this replacement.  Nikon D300 w/300mm.
