Unknown Biplane

Could someone help identify this biplane from a TV show, please? No other scene / camera angle is available though.

  • $\begingroup$ Sorry, it's "Falcon Crest" # 075 <4.07>, but I thought it's no help because this is the only visible angle in a very short segment. $\endgroup$

My vote would be a Waco UPF-7 without the engine cowl:

Looks like the one in the OP post has a different engine in it or at least a relocated cooler, but the struts and windscreen design look very similar. (Struts on the right side are distorted by perspective, look at the ones on the left). Gear bracing is also pretty close.

    $\begingroup$ Looks like a direct hit +1! Struts, gear, windshield all fit. Only the air intake is most likely an oil cooler. $\endgroup$ Dec 29 '20 at 8:57

    $\begingroup$ I originally called it a cooler but second guessed myself... $\endgroup$
