An OFG's Airplane

Post about everything from carrying a handkerchief to manly skills (sharpening a pocket knife, etc), to product reviews of items that may have slipped inder our radar (ie Grandpa's Pine Tar soap). No threads on anything 'new' unless it hearkens to old-fashioned sensibilities and ideals.

The Piper Cub is a neat plane. Fun to fly, but the Aeronca Champ is superior since you can solo from the front seat.
