Disassembly – The Barn Cub

On January 18, 2009, Piper Cub 20304 was pulled from its barn-like hangar after sitting since 1950. Although it sat for almost six decades, the engine had strong compression, one tire tube held air (until its valve stem broke), and most nuts broke freely from their bolts. The disassembly for transportation to Ranger was quite an experience. View the Barn Cub’s Disassembly Album and enjoy the first stage of getting the old Cub airborne.
