Never been the only husky at a super cub party but I have been the only husky at a husky party. Just saying....

Former Super Cub owner, and a current Husky owner this is spot on. Thanks for the laugh. Husky party + Boulevard Wheat. SJ will probably recognize it. 33801

Yep. Love my plane. No regrets. Just seems that the husky group is a bit more independent and doesn't really get together as a group much?

I party with plenty of husky owners. Swing by my hangar sometime. Cold beer in the fridge.

Although I knew one geologist that owned one and he was a good guy, most are flown by Goverment types in AK.
No one wants to be associated with that crowd...

Really? All the Husky owners/pilots in Alaska I know are non government types. About 7 or 8 off the top of my head. Not that Im a government type, but what is wrong with being associated with "government types"? School teachers, police, fire fighters, highway maintenance crews, military, what is wrong with these types?

Husky out number Super Cubs around here. Actually work a little better than a cub around here cause everything is so far away and the density altitude doesn't bother them as much.

I wonder how Aviat decides on the N numbers on the airplanes built for the open market. I think they throw darts at a board with letters and numbers on it. They seem to be all over the place with N numbers. I like seeing an old PA18 with its original number, C180's too. Never been a fan of vanity numbers.

Many of those tail numbers are chosen by dealers, others are just some contraction of “Husky”, as in HU or HY.

Gary is my brother. Hotel Yankee on here. His tail number is 399HY. Mine is 85HY. We live about 10 miles apart. Both have grass strips at home. He has all black stripes, I have the red stripe. Thinking the top pic is Gary but third one is definitely me. I remember that cub next to me. Nice cub.

There's a lot of runway there to be that close to that house. Bet there were some bricks **** that day. Wowza. My first real mountain experience was at Johnson creek. Tried to ready myself as much as possible before going but still Intimidating to say the least for a flatlander. By the second day I was feeling much more comfortable. Love that place. Wish I could spend more time out there.

I'm just poking fun at some 'old' government pilot types that frequent this site. I don't have anything too serious against
the Husky...The pitch trim and the 1400 screws that hold them together is about it.

It wouldn't be the first time the windsock at either end at JC, especially getting towards mid day, was indicating two different directions, just saying. But, no matter, a proper approach would have left him plenty of room even if he had a slight tailwind, it's not like its that short, at 3400', or that high.

Some of the dealers deliver them with tennis balls or other “cushions” on those flap hangars. They’ve got me more than once.

of course, I’ve also walked into the trailing edge of more than one cub wing.....dang ball caps hide things.

Good stuff, well mostly :-) The statute of limitations has probably run out, but I will keep folks nameless anyway. About fifteen years ago, a bunch of super cubs were on a grand adventure in Texas with a few "other" airplanes. A few of the super cubs got into some trouble here in there and replacement components were needed in some cases. The 123.45 chatter was ribbing the guy in the Husky about why he was at a super cub event, and he calmly replied, "Someone has to go get parts for you". The radio was quiet for a while...

As they apparently say in Oz, if you want to go into the bush, take a Land Rover, if you want to come back take a Land Cruiser.

My ride is a Super Cub and hasnít let me down, but like SJís anecdote.

When I started fooling around with Supercubs in a land far ago, and long long away, the crusty old I.A. we worked with, "Red" Blatchley muttered that both Walter Jamineau and Bill Piper must have had stock in the Parker-Kalon screw company. You'd start with #6's, move up to 8's, then 10's, and the next logical progression was 5/16" lag screws.... :lol:
