A Month in a Cub

Some guy flew a Piper Cub from California to New Jersey and back this summer, so that he could fly up and down the Hudson River by New York City. The photos are a wonder to behold.

There is more on his website.

What a lucky man. I wonder how many trips like this happened after WWII, when people just wanted to enjoy a nice, long flight. Seems improbable now, and only highlighted by this instance.

Having flown to the Gulf Coast and Oshkosh and a few other places he did the one trip thats still pending. The NY Hudson River VFR corridor. It's still doable.

Love his pictures!
