For 20 years we were the proud Owner / custodians of Boeing Stearman G-BTFG known to many as "Sweet Sue". The aircraft brought great pleasure to all those who flew in her and those that watched her being displayed both here in Kent and further afield in Scotland and lastly at RAF Cosford in 2019.
We hope that she will continue to bring pleasure to her new owner / custodian and those that are lucky enough to fly in her.
History behind G-BTFG
As far as possible we have traced the roots of our Stearman and we believe it to be US Navy variant, model A75-N25-4, built circa 1942/3. The aircraft probably remained in military hands well into the 1950s. The aircraft entered civilian hands in 1957 and remained in use until late in 1966 when it was taken out of service. In 1971/72 the aircraft was rebuilt as a crop duster and remained in service until 1981. A further rebuild was completed in 1986 and in January 1991 the aircraft was shipped to the UK and acquired by TG Aviation in 2002.
