When I was a lad, flight lessons were eight dollars an hour, or as much money as I earned in an eight-hour day clerking at the First National store or building summer camps for tourists. So it was a very long time before I actually learned to fly, in a 1944 L-4 Piper Cub built for the Massachusetts National Guard. That started me on a wonderful adventure with Cubs, a Great Lakes aerobatic plane, and an Aviat Husky--taildraggers all! Here is the story of the planes I flew, the places I visited, and the stunts I survived. Blue skies! -- Dan Ford
