Watch the construction of a Cub at the Piper Aircraft Factory filmed in 1943.
My Dad and Uncle both had cubs in 1946. Dad flew his into the ground in 2/47.
My memories of them were that the were made of wax paper and kite sticks. I guess they were a good deal more than that. :o) You don’t have any idea what it meant to me to find this video and be able to watch “dad’s” plane being built. Thanks to you and all that may have had a hand in putting it here. oldbuck from Iowa
This video is awesome for a Cub owner and others interested in light airplanes. I couldn’t believe it when I first saw it. Thank you for posting Jared.
Very interesting film. I didn’t know that 70% of the lift of the wing comes from the top surface.
[…] Hat tip to Jared Calvert at Ranger Airfield for the video post on the Ranger Airfield website. […]
