A neat thread on the restoration of the Piper Cub that was flown coast to coast in 1966 by two brothers and documented in the fantastic book Flight of Passage.

I agree. It's a great book...funny, edge of your seat flying and gives the reader a sense of what its like to cross the country in a 'simple', single engine plane while fighting the elements and having fun while doing it. Flying formation with crop dusters, chasing a locomotive, trying to gain altitude to cross through the Guadalupe Gap, sleeping under a wing...just a great book.
It would make a solid movie...
