The Boeing Stearman Biplane was formerly used as a military trainer aircraft. At least 10,626 were built in the United States during the 1930s and 1940s. Stearman Aircraft became a subsidiary of Boeing in 1934. Widely known as the Stearman, Boeing Stearman or Kaydet, it served as a primary trainer for the United States Army Air Forces, the United States Navy, and with the Royal Canadian Air Force as the Kaydet throughout World War II. After the conflict was over, thousands of surplus aircraft were sold on the civilian market. In the immediate postwar years the Boeing Stearman Biplane became popular as crop dusters, sports planes, and for aerobatic and wing walking use in air shows.
