    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.

    One of yours took me down. I was used to supercubs, ducking enough to get under the wing. Not so with huskys

    Saw one at OSH one year that they had split foam pool noodles to put over the meat hooks...

    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.

    I'm truly sorry, and I did not mean to include you in the rif-raff. Let's blame Pierce. I assume it was around that part of the world?

    Or even semi-grumpy ladies... (they are probably thinking about the next annual and how many machine screws there are to deal with. We always assumed when Frank designed the Husky he made a faustian bargin with a machine screw salesman.)

    "(they are probably thinking about the next annual and how many machine screws there are to deal with. We always assumed when Frank designed the Husky he made a faustian bargin with a machine screw salesman.)"

    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....

    Thanks Stewart, Starr/Whitewings Aircraft is making it light as possible. The Airglas guys do nice work. Doing the nosebowl now. Starr is putting the carbon fiber instrument panel on the cub next! Eliminating all the individual gauges to clean it up, will similar to Husky panel.

    I really wanted to go to that fly-in but just a bit too far for me, about 5 hours one way. That would have made it 7 Husky's.

    Those and the shovels on the ailerons. I wonder how many Huskys have been wrecked by the shovels snagging on the bushes? Sort of like landing in too tall grass only sideways?

    If one hits something with the spade you are probably in deep trouble already, almost impossible to hit anything with them, other than someone head when walking under the wing!
    Newer Husky's eliminated them in about 2009. Flaps are longer, ailerons are deeper and narrower.
    The custom spades on the one Husky I have are airfoils that just give one power steering, very light touch on ailerons.

    John,

    The “new wing” Husky was introduced in 2005. It was a great improvement, and not just due to the elimination of the “airodynamic counterbalances”.....
