Wolfe Airshows Fleet
The WolfePack currently includes two aircraft: One an "Experimental" built by an "Amateur", and one built by one of the most famous manufacturers in General Aviation history.
Lamar Steen conceived the Skybolt in 1968 to fulfill a need for a high-performance two-place aerobatic biplane that could accommodate larger pilots comfortably (Lamar was a big guy). The prototype was built in just a year by the high-school shop class he taught at Denver's Manual High School, as a project to teach wood, tube and fabric construction skills.
By the late '70s, the Skybolt became the most constructed two-place experimental aircraft of all time.
Obviously, every airplane is as unique as the builder, and no two experimental aircraft will ever be identical. But if you like aggressive, pop-the-eyes-out-of-your-head aerobatics, then the Skybolt is certainly up to the task!

Originally built for the post-war boom, the 1947 Cessna 140 is the Grand Dad of all Cessna single-engine aircraft.
The Cessna 120, 140, and 140A, are single-engine, two-seat, conventional landing gear (tailwheel), light general aviation aircraft that were first produced in 1946, immediately following the end of World War II. Production ended in 1951, and was succeeded in 1959 by the Cessna 150, a similar two-seat trainer which introduced tricycle gear. Combined production of both aircraft was 7,664 units in five years.
This was the plane that would make Cessna a juggernaut in light-airplane manufacturing -- seizing from Piper the crown of "#1 Lightplane Maker."
