Thanks for sharing
Only in a Cub!!!!
Like your new paint job Flyboy
Great flying there, and quite funny as well.......
really funny flying.
I'd guess he had skid plates on the wingtips?
that was phenomenal!!!!
I´m wondering if this A/C has the lower wing tips somehow protected...
Hard to imagine something like that with L-39 Joe
I hope so - those wing bows are expensive!

Great, it works again!!!
Just in case, here´s one more link
With no doubts his wife must be happy
Some background about the pilot Kyle Franklin Crew Info
and the wingtips: Kyle also flies one of the wildest Comedy acts you'll ever see; so wild he has steel skid plates taped to the wingtips so when he intentionally drags the wings on the ground it doesn't hurt them.
Well I have been trying to access the video first posted for a while, and now it is not available. But going to seesuls link I see why it was posted in the first place. Jimmy Franklin is the best. When I was sign writing in Livermore CA Jimmy was performing at the air show, and I happened to share a hangar at the airport, I had my sign shop base in a little office above a loungeroom in the hangar. Jimmy parked his amazing Waco in the hangar. I remember his wing walker, a bloke, looked like a bit of a Borg with an external steel frame around one arm, pins through and rods attached forearm to upper arm. Seems he got it caught hand propping a plane. I later saw him preform at the Salinas air show. Diving into depressions in the earth, disapearing and reappearing, what a pilot. I can believe his son would be able to do Anything impossible! good memories. cheers, Bill
