Seattle Museum of Flight is the current owner of this venerable Boeing
Model 100 Biplane.
"Restored to its original condition, the Museum's
Model 100 was one of four built as commercial/export versions of the
Navy F4B-1. This one was sold to Pratt & Whitney and was used as a
flying test bed for engines and is currently outfitted with a Pratt
& Whitney R-985 Wasp Junior engine. Pratt & Whitney sold the
plane to stunt and airshow pilot Milo Burcham. Purchased by movie pilot
Paul Mantz in 1948, it appears in the background of many aviation films.
The fighter was restored to flyable condition and given an Army P-12
paint job in 1977."
