WACO CTO Taperwing performance and specifications

The WACO Taperwing is every pilot's dream. Designed in 1928, the Taperwing was a racer that set speed records and won competitions on the racing circuit. As impressive as its speed was, it was its ability to dance that made the Taperwing a legend. For nearly two decades, this craft was the dean of aerobatics and airshows, becoming the plane of choice for many of the world's top performance pilots. Excelling at everything it set out to do, this little biplane remains a legend to this day, although, unfortunately, few remain.
