A Salute to the Fallen Pilots
- John Denver
- John F. Kennedy
When we think of these courageous heros, our hearts bleed. Let us never forget these men. John Denver, the dreamer, the creater of sunchine on your shoulder...He lived a life exploding with creativity. And then there's another John. Our beloved prince, JFK. According to Aviation Safety, September 1999 edition, Piper PA-32-R301 Saratoga II, N9253N, crashed into the water approximatley 7 1/2 miles southwest of Gay Head, Martha's Vineyard on July 16, 1999 at 9:41 PM., EDT. Every time you fly by JFK Airport along the South Shore of Long Island, think of him. He wasn't quite his father, but he was certainly his own man.

The Classic J-3 Cub
Visit the J-3 Cub at: The National Air and Space Museum
A Brief History
June, 1931 the E-2 Cub was born. Later, it was altered to the J-2 Cub. The "J" stands for Jamouneau. In 1937 the Janouneau Cub was altered again to the J-3 that we know today. Check out the entire history at J-3 History
The J-3 Cub was and remains a beautiful aircraft. It's light, easy to fly style is a classic. When you say "Cub" people are instantly tuned into small aircraft. It is the aircraft that has stood the test of time. They are just as fabulous and wonderful as they were in 1937. With their "cub" insignia and their sleek and standard yellow, you can't miss them at any airfield. The best thing about them is that they are aircraft that fall into the new Sports License if the FAA ever finalizes it.
Don't miss the Elmira/Corning National War Planes Musium, which has a wonderful collection of National War planes right on the field. Call 607-739-8200 for details and directions.
