BACK COVER: Long-time AACA/SAA stalwart John Geary departs the Bridge Pa runway during the Taildragger Day festivities on 12 September. No stranger to the type, he managed to beat all other Cub pilots to come third in the Cub class STOL competition and, with co-owner Tim Dennis in charge of the flour bags, second in the Jailbar bombing.
