  • A first for Historics
  • Single seat stunt plane

The Oldfield Super Baby Great Lakes stunt plane is a classic aerobatic marvel. Built in the 1970s, this biplane embodies the essence of precision and agility in the skies. With its distinctive open cockpit and sleek design, it's a favorite among aerobatic enthusiasts. Powered by a powerful radial engine, the Great Lakes is known for its remarkable maneuverability and responsive controls, making it ideal for executing thrilling stunts and aerial displays. Its robust construction and timeless appeal ensure that it remains a cherished icon in the world of vintage aviation, embodying the spirit of daring pilots and the golden age of aerobatics.

This delightful biplane is a first for Historics and ties in perfectly with our first auction at Farnborough. Most recently this Barney Oldfield designed aeroplane has been used as display feature in a car showroom where, we are told, it was a real head turner. The ‘Baby lakes’ is a well thought of plane that can handle up to 9 G’s when maneuvering and an inexpensive entry point into aerobatic flying. The engine for this example is part of the sale but to make displaying easier is not currently fitted. The file that accompanies this plane contains the aircraft logbook and engine logbook detailing when it last flew. This is a rare opportunity to own an unusual display item or with the correct reconditioning to once again have lift off. Consigned by Dominic Lake
