It still bewilders me how the pilots of those old bi-planes can see where they're going.

Surely the field of view is obstructed a good +/- 30 degrees from dead ahead.

Admittedly at level flight they could see better but during take-off and landing.....the two most critical aspects of flying????? I don't get it.

But still looks like fun.

That's why taildragger (and particularly biplane) pilots are more awesome.

You have to fly a curving approach or a sideslip if you want to see the touchdown point then lose sight of the runway completely at the last minute. All you can see is the Lycoming in a Pitts special as you come over the hedge at 100mph.
