Bumble Bee II
Robert Starr, who flew the Sky Baby at airshows in the early 1950s, built the Bumble Bee II in Phoenix, Arizona, in 1988 to snatch the “World’s Smallest” title from Stits. Guinness named it the World’s Smallest Biplane. The airplane was destroyed in a crash; the original Bumble Bee is on display at the Pima Air and Space Museum in Tucson, Arizona.
