Flying in a Stearman
Bi-planes in general invoke a sense of the cavalier, a sense of "adventure, fame, the thrill of a lifetime" as Carl Denham -- the dauntless filmmaker in King Kong -- put it.
In fact, a Stearman is a close cousin to the Curtiss bi-planes that dispatched the hairy giant atop the Empire State Building. Of course, it wasn't really the airplanes that did the job; it was beauty that killed the beast -- allegorically speaking.
And besides all those reasons, the Stearman's bright yellow and powder blue colors were irresistible.
