Stearman pilots, from left, Dave Holmes, James Love, top, Larry Tobin and Jeff Hamilton, returned to Felts Field in Spokane. The pilots swept the national flying competition awards for “Four-Ship” formation flying and aerobatic competition at the 39th Annual National Stearman Fly-in last week in Galesburg, Ill.

Stearman biplanes, such as the four shown here, were built in Kansas from 1935 to 1945 and used in military training.
