Video :: The Construction of a Light Aircraft (1943)

Awesome video.  Even at 27 minutes long, it’s worthy of your time if you have even a passing interest in vintage aircraft.  Follow along as the Piper factory builds a J-3 Cub from start to finish.

Yes, the opening and closing aircraft are J-4’s and J-5’s. Pretend it’s a J-3 from start to finish, okay?  In theater, they call that suspension of disbelief.

Hat tip to Jared Calvert at Ranger Airfield for the video post on the Ranger Airfield website.

    Best 27 minutes of film I’ve watched. I would love to build one!
