I wonder how much of the orginal plane he was able to reuse if any.

At today's J3 prices, all he needed was the data plate.

Quite a bit. The rebuilder is posting on DFWPilots.com; here's his answer to that question:

Quote:
I'd say 75% was useable. For instance 3 of the 4 aluminum spars were good. 4 of the 26 ribs had to be replaced. The fuselage was in great shape once we found the pitting to be minimal. I paid a professional aircraft welder to replace maybe 4 feet of tubing total. BUT... I did but install new leading edges, bow tips, false spars, a trailing edge, and root fairings. The engine was in good condition but all parts were sent off for inspection anyway. Only two lifter bodies didn't pass.

Re: Texas Barn Cub Resurrection

I know this has been discussed before, but why did they use "NC" in tail numbers on many old planes? Why do we only see "N" now, and not NC?

The FBO at my airport has a Cub. I need to fly that thing soon. It looks like a BLAST.

C was for type certified designs
X for experimental
R for restricted

Re: Texas Barn Cub Resurrection

Thanks Tony. So why did they drop the "C", and the "X"?

So, NCC-1701 was certified, correct?

Re: Texas Barn Cub Resurrection

after WWII or so everything went to just N and experimental, restricted etc. had to be placed in letters big enough to read for passengers boarding.

Got it. Thanks again. Guess they wanted passengers knowing what they were getting into without having to decipher the code.

Very impressive. Quite the labor of love to get it back in the air. Was a lot of fun watching the progress.

In the Star Trek Universe, the hull number was assigned the contract number, or, "Naval Construction Contract".

But I'm sure the Enterprise had full certification for spaceflight operations.

Re: Texas Barn Cub Resurrection

If it was registered prior to 1950, would the N number be still in data base? applied to this cub?

Man...that was awesome. It's great to know there are people with enough passion to do that and get that aircraft flying again...it deserves it.

In the case of Restricted it's more of a "Keep Out" sign to 'passengers'. Restricted is only allowed crew and workers.

They rebuilt it once, they can do it again.
