Wow....I was just looking through the photo gallery and saw this photo,

Something seemed familiar about it, and it soon dawned on me that the seats were upholstered in red, a bit unusual for a cub. Now a few years ago I owned a UK registered J-3 G-BPPV, which I sold to a guy in Ireland when I returned home to Australia, which had red seats. PPV was re-registered EI-CUB in Ireland, and I had an uneasy feeling that this was my old Cub. I did a bit of 'Googling', and was shocked to find that this was indeed my old aircraft. I had flown almost 200 hours in this aircraft, and it broke my heart to see it destroyed.
