Last night I had the absolute pleasure of a photographing a friend's pristinely restored 1946 Piper J-3 Cub, based out of New Garden airport. The owner and a few partners started with an airplane in pieces, and turned it into this.
These airplanes are iconic in the world of aviation. Simple, cloth-covered structures, put together in such a beautiful way - it's like a flying work of art! Their history not only cuts across the world of aviation, but the world in general. They were used extensively for training pilots during WWII, and different variations of this airplane saw combat during that epic struggle. Read through the link above to the Wikipedia site for details.
Without further delay, please enjoy some pictures of this perfectly restored piece of American aviation history!
