Piper J3 Cub – Flying high now!

It’s all things yellow and black to honor the trademark yellow fuselage and black trim of the legendary Piper J3 Cub seen behind me. I’m holding a copy of my House Bill 1989, which names the Piper Cub as Pennsylvania’s official aircraft, during celebrations in Lock Haven held as part of the 29th Annual Sentimental Journey to Cub Haven Fly-In. The fully restored Piper J3 Cub was made available by C & D Aviation of Bessemer AL.  The firm also treated me to a magnificent ride in the Cub, built in 1964. More than 20,000 Piper Cubs were built in Lock Haven between 1937 and 1947, and they remain favorite to this day, 77 years after production began.
