: "This Aeronca L-16A was assigned to our Civil Air Patrol squadron. This photo was taken during a Cadet Orientation Day, and all the cadets in our squadron were given a 15 minute airplane ride. For most this was the first airplane ride. This was my favorite airplane - it was a dream to fly. Once the mains hit the ground with that long telescoping gear, it stayed on the ground. No bouncy-wouncy like a Cub!"
