All about the immortal J-3 Piper Cub and L-4 Grasshopper, built by William Piper at Lock Haven, which evolved into the PA-11 Cub Special, PA-18 Super Cub, and the Legend Cub and other lookalikes of today


Slovak Cub

I'm always entranced by photos of Mr. Piper's J-3 Cub, and here's a twofer--not only the two Cubs, one a model and the other the real thing, but at an airport in Slovakia. Is there anyplace in the world that the gallant J-3 hasn't made a convert? The photo comes from Ladislav (Laco) Szabo, a graphic designer who finances his flying by selling tee shirts at €13 a pop. See Laco's site online. Blue skies! -- Dan Ford
