Valley View Editor Lisa Allen goes for a flight with George Moore, a pilot with the Red Baron Stearman Squadron, while the aerobatic team was in Seattle for Seafair. The wood and fabric open cockpit biplanes were built in the late 1930s and early 1940s. The team's appearance during the hydroplane races benefited Miracle Flights for Kids, a nonprofit organization providing no cost air transportation for children and families to hospitals and specialized care facilities around the country.
