Stampe SV.4: You can run but you can’t hide.

Stampe SV.4: You can run but you can't hide.

Designed in Belgium in the 30’s this famous biplane had a tortuous story.Built in modest number before the outbreak of WW2 the arrival of peace changed that.The perceived need of some basic trainers by its home country and the massive one of France (where it was built under license) turned the Stampe into a truly classic.
A very Hitchcock-ian use for this lovely Biplane.
