Was it you in the cafe at Caernarfon last summer (late May)? Some weirdo (me) came up and asked you about this a/c that just landed, asking if it was a cub? :lol:
TBH after that I developed quite a soft spot for the Aeronca.

@JulietTango no that wasn't me, this Defender only flew again in October after an extended bare-frame rebuild. Back in May in the UK there were two active military-scheme Aeroncas, an L3 Defender now itself on a rebuild, and a beautifully restored Korean war L16. Delighted to hear you've a soft spot for Aeroncas - I can only recommend you indulge it!

If I get the chance I will! (BTW - I think it was the L16).
