Seems everybody who’s done any kind of flying has a J3 Cub lurking somewhere in their psyche.A most evocative rendering of the mystique of flight in a Cub comes in the form of a poetic blog by Michael Bradford, a long time hang glider, ultralight and light plane pilot. *** I wrote for a publication, Glider Rider (now Light Sport and Ultralight Flying), that he edited for years and we hadn’t talked in some time. My loss. *** Now, as self-described “recovering smartass” and software writer, Michael keeps his feet in the hang gliding harness boot and can be counted on for eclectic, highly original takes on ‘most everything. *** But don’t take my word for it: check out his blog. *** He calls himself “Lazarus Nobody.” The blog’s titled: Nobody’s Flying Service: Making People Nervous since 1951. *** I bet, like me, you will nod and smile as you read through his excellent take on what it means to fly. I plan to read it over on a regular basis.
