This Cub's got a little Captain in it

Although I've never seen this live, it's one of the greatest airshow performances I've ever seen. The comedy is good but it's the incredible flying skill that seals the deal. I sure want to see Kyle Franklin do this with my own Mark I eyeballs some day because this man is one hell of a pilot.



Hope you enjoyed it as much as me!

  1. Very entertaining! It's amazing what a Cub will do in the right hands...I wonder what they put on the wingtips to keep them from being ground down to nothing.

  2. I think I saw on his website that they installed steel skid plates on the wingtips for the act. Definitely some impressive flying!

  3. Great clip Steve. I've yet to see him perform live, but know that Kyle Franklin does quite a few shows every year. He was up at Cleveland this year, but with a low and slow show he is really ideal for smaller airports. It would be great to have him appear around Dayton or Cincinnati.

  4. Looks like my take offs and landings and trips around the patch.
