1928 Hickman Biplane



The Hickman Biplane was one of many small wood and fabric homebuilt aircraft popular during the 1920's and 30's

The tiny single seater designed by Orville Hickman, was powered by a variety of small powerplants including Henderson, Irwin, Szekely and Aeronca engines.

Some Hickman’s were built on floats (which may explain why so few have survived to the present.)

The Tiger Boys’ Hickman Biplane was built in 1928 and ended up in a barn in the Peterborough area.

When the barn was scheduled for demolition, the owner planned to scrap the Biplane along with it - but the Tiger Boys got there just in the nick of time and another piece of aviation history was saved from the junk heap.
