The Oldfield Baby Great Lakes is a homebuilt sport biplane.

Design and developmentEdit

The Baby Great Lakes was designed by Barney Oldfield, and originally built by Richard Lane, to be a scaled-down homebuilt derivative of the Great Lakes Sport Trainer.

The Baby Great Lakes is built using 136 ft (41.5 m) of steel tubing for the fuselage with aircraft fabric covering. The wings use spruce spars. The aircraft can accommodate engines ranging from the Continental A-65 to the Volkswagen air-cooled engine.
