Barnard Foote is the latest lucky member to experience the thrill of open-cockpit flying in a Waco biplane.
Foote got to spend several hours with Mike and Kendle Hanson of Biplane Rides in Long Beach, Calif., after being selected as a monthly winner in AOPA's two-year Centennial of Flight Sweepstakes, the grand prize of which is a fully restored Waco UPF-7 biplane. For your chance at one of the monthly trips for a Waco ride, and for the Waco itself, simply join or renew your membership in AOPA.
