Waco 9 bi-plane

Frank Pavliga is the owner/pilot/architect of this great 1925 Waco 9 bi-plane. It is the only airworthy one in the world, and he let me photograph it. Frank built it from the ground up using factory blueprints. The engine, gauges and several other important items are all original. Finding parts is the real issue as only 270 of these were ever made and none of them fly anymore, most were crashed beyond repair. This was a 49 second exposure with one very small light source that will remain undisclosed, ha, I can’t tell all my secrets.
