It is an Emroth Emair MA-1B bi-plane. Looked up the registration in the NTSB database and it was blown off the runway at Pahala and down an embankment Dec 5,1995. It also listed 3 other accidents of this type one fatal when a wing seperated in 1985.
Old? It was built in 1978, the year I graduated from high school. I remember Marsh Aviation got one in 1977 and they still have it going, they've switched out the original R1820 (1200hp derated to 900hp) for one of 1475hp. These were built out of Stearman parts so parts of them are old, I guess.
Stella...Yes, the planes are located at the old airport. This particular plane was damaged as mentioned by vkoontz. There are older planes that were kept in good conditons at least for a while (Murray). They may have it in the Hanger. Peter..as far as the choppers, there are civilian and military choppers that usually park there....not sure which one on this particular day. Aloha
