Back in the day ..... and the year I was born.

And still doing the same jobs, hard to beat 😀👍

The very first airplane I ever road in was a Piper Cub. Our local "airfield" was cut out of a cornfield and grassed in for a smooth surface.

What a great airplane.

Thanks Joe.

Thanks for posting Joe!

Awesome airplane

Dale Hansen was grandpa’s Super Cub a 1957?

Had two on store. Loved them both.

I was lucky enough this month to tour the Piper Museum in Loch Haven, Pennsylvania. Amazing collection!

Awesome! Funny with the blurb about the “low initial cost”, who knew...😂

I have one that flies by our house every once in awhile. I can always tell when I hear it by how slow it goes. <3 We are way out in the sticks.

Learned to fly in one.

Excellent
