Is all that scrubbing on the tyre from tarmack use?

Is it true 90% of all the bushwheels in Amerrycar are only used on tar runways?

Great little machine Supercubs, good fun.
Cute.
It's called 'fueling up'


Here's a nice little vid for you of our Catalina coastline…
Hope you enjoy….

Thanks for the vid... beautiful.

With the sound track, it reminded me of the old Masterpiece Theater...

Expected to hear Alistair Cook begin a narration of a Jack London story in a modern setting...

Triffic shots. Good thing about Cubs and Pacers is the original exhaust system, you can fly low slow and not annoy anybody.

A Pacer?

When I bought my Cherokee140 I was this close to buying a very nice tri-pacer. It was a cool plane.

More tundra tire goodness...

A local plane, fully restored, no expense spared (so it seems, to me).
Beautiful plane...

Given 'Bushwheels" and the look of the can I figured it might be a can of "Busch"...

This one was a Tri but converted, the back window's in Tri's have that segmented edge, a genwhine Pacer has a curved outline like the Pretty Supercub in the piccies.

Good to see the panel in the Cub is "Oldskool" with the only electronic thing the GPS.
