Looks like an original cub... fabric wings and fuselage... I love it. I bet it would be fun to fly slowly. Do you have a side view?

Cheers,
alexis and Georgie Beagle

It is an original J-3 - wonderful planes to fly.

I do not have a side shot for that one, but have many others at my Cub gallery.

Here's one from a few years ago

and here is me with a Super Cub that belongs to a friend (who took the picture). This was a few years ago when we flew to Homestead General (at the edge of the Everglades). I even have a Cub T-shirt!

Did I say I love Cubs? I am stoked for the imminent release of MS FS2020 (next week August 18). I'll be flying cubs there!

I once visited the factory for a Cub reunion where they had Cubs galore as you see here

What a great series of cubs... I really love the shot on short final (first shot)

That J-3 on the first one is a takeoff.

I had fun once with my friend in the Super Cub. We landed in the grass strip at X51 and I stayed put in the runway while he did a couple fo low passes like this one
