N29353 Waco UPF-7 c/n 5380 - Hatten airfield near Oldenburg in Germany - 11 August 1996 oldtimer bi-planes

Waco Aircraft Co. was founded in 1920 as Weaver Aircraft Co. By 1930, the company was a leader in the design of wood and fabric aircraft. Waco built open cockpit biplanes to private owners. The UPF-7 was built in greater quantity than any single Waco model that preceded it. As the PT-14 it was ordered by the U.S.Army for use as a trainer. Approximately 600 came out of the Troy, Ohio factory between 1937 and 1942. The UPF-7 was a continuation of the Waco "F" series which had been introduced with Model INF of 1930. The letter "U" identified the engine as the 220hp Continental VW-670-6A, the "P" identified the wing and fuselage design. The "F" reflected the principal design characteristics of the airplane.

On 11 August 1996, the 1940-built Waco UPF-7 N29353 was photographed at Flugplatz Oldenburg-Hatten in Germany.
