    cub 1.png cub 2.png cub 4.png cub 5.png cub 7.png cub 8.png cub 9.png After ours got sold and crashed before it left the airport with the new owner the family was very upset. We decided to get another Cub. After flying all the high performance, complex and aerobatic stuff the J-3 is still my favorite bird. 1000TT and 70 after 2014 restoration. We will keep this airplane forever.

    The cub was one of my favorite planes to fly. That one looks like a beauty. Good luck! Enjoy 65mph with the door open, not much competes with that.

    I guess you fly the Cub with the window open when the weather's too bad for the Breezy? :)

    I have no idea how you would allow yourself to be seen in public with that thing. I'll do you the favor of taking that monstrosity off your hands.
